Synopsis / Plot
Pasolini wrote, directed and stars in this richly textured epic based on eight tales by 14th-century Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio. Pasolini weaves the stories together into a bawdy tapestry of a medieval Italy populated by artists, priests and magicians. Appearing in the role of the great pre-Renaissance painter Giotto, Pasolini guides the viewer through a cinematic landscape ripe with sensuality and irreverent humor.. First in Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life," which also includes THE ARABIAN NIGHTS and THE CANTERBURY TALES. Originally rated X by the Motion Picture Association of America.
1971: Berlin Film Festival: Silver Bear - Special Jury Prize
