Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur

The Decameron

Il Decameron
France, Italy, West Germany | 1971 | Pier Paolo Pasolini

The Decameron

Giovanni Boccaccio's ribald medieval tales of love, lust, sex, deceit, malefaction, and murder are rollickingly, bawdily brought to the screen in the first part of Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" (three adults-only films based on three celebrated story cycles). Franco Citti, Ninetto Davoli, and Pasolini himself star. Music by Ennio Morricone. The trilogy continues with The Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights on the next two Sundays.
