I racconti di Canterbury (1972)

a.k.a The Canterbury Tales

Glimpses of Chaucer penning his famous work are sprinkled through this re-enactment of several of his stories.


Wonderful and insane - the perfect spiritual representation of the Canterbury Tales… in a similar way to The Devils - people who haven't read the original texts the films are based on are assuming the director is being self indulgent…

This is about the point where Pasolini completely loses me. I find most of his work before this great and brilliant, but his last three films are rather hard to take, in my opinion.

It's too bad that, largely in part due to his last few films, he's largely only remembered now as a provocateur, when his early work is so much more complex and compassionate and thoughtful.
