Pier Paolo Pasolini: Poet and Provocateur
France, Italy | 1966 | Mauro Bolognini, Vittorio De Sica, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Franco Rossi, Luchi
Five major Italian filmmakers—including Pasolini, De Sica, and Visconti—contribute segments to this five-part rarity that does not deal with witches of the supernatural variety. Silvana Mangano stars in all five episodes, playing everything from a famous movie star to an unhelpful good Samaritan. She is supported in individual stories by other famous actors: Alberto Sordi, Totò, and even a very young Clint Eastwood! Pasolini’s amusing 30-min. segment, The Earth as Seen from the Moon (La Terra Vista Dalla Luna) with Totò, Ninetto Davoli, and Laura Betti, follows a widowed father and his son as they search for a new wife and mother.
