  • The Decameron

    1971. Italy. Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. With Franco Citti, Ninetto Davoli, Silvana Mangano. “Taking 10 tales out of the 100 in Boccaccio’s Decameron, Pasolini has created one of the most beautiful, turbulent, and uproarious panoramas of early Renaissance life ever put on film. It is also one of the most obscene, if obscene defines something that is offensive to ordinary concepts of chastity, delicacy, and decency, although I’d hardly call the film offensive to morals” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times, December 9, 1971). In Italian; English subtitles. 111 min.
