Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur
Uccellacci e Uccellini
Italy | 1966 | Pier Paolo Pasolini
In Pasolini’s delightful comic fable, a father (Totò), his son (Ninetto Davoli), and a talking crow embark on a picaresque journey to emulate St. Francis of Assisi and bring the Gospel to the birds. Like The Gospel According to St. Matthew (see 1/18 at 5:00), this is a singular mix of Christianity and Marxism, with a terrific Ennio Morricone score. Subtitles.
