Il Fiore Delle Mille E Una Notte
France, Italy | 1974 | Pier Paolo Pasolini
The final part of Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" (see 2/9 at 4pm) is the longest and most intricate. Filmed in Yemen, Eritrea, Iran, and Nepal, this opulent work follows a young man as he searches for his beloved slave girl who has been kidnapped. But this main narrative is dissected and amplified by a series of other erotic tales. With Ninetto Davoli and Franco Citti; music by Ennio Morricone. No one under 18 admitted!
