    Is there a better mockery than farting?

    A collection of short stories by Chaucer, the pioneer of English literature in the 14th century, which Pasolini brought to the screen in his own style. Several small stories, full of irony and ridicule. The darkness, fragility, greed and hypocrisy of human nature are exposed in these stories. The...

    "The Director's Talk" "The Canterbury Tales"

    This film is the second part of Pasolini's "Life Trilogy", the first being "Ten Days" and the last being "A Thousand and One Nights". These three films are based on the original works of world literature. The original work of "Decameron" is known as "The Song of Man", which is on par with Dante's...

    Narrate in leisure, liberate nature in paradox

    I have always believed that the barriers to entry for Pierre Paul Pasolini's films are very high, because of his extensive knowledge, strange bad taste, dubbing and translation problems caused by the age, etc., I dare not watch it The notorious [120 Days of Sodom], this [Canterbury Tales], which...

    Chaucer's background is the most important key

    Based on the ancient English writings of Chaucer. As a visual animal, we must admit the desire to watch movies that was initially triggered by the director's Italian vision as always. The eight scattered narratives do not have much connection, and it is vaguely felt that there should be a deeper...

    My watchbook: The Canterbury Tales

    Pasolini's most famous work, apart from the infamous "120 Days of Sodom", should be the "Trilogy of Life". "The Canterbury Tales" is the second part of the trilogy. Although it does not have the desperation and pervertedness of Sodom, it is also not much in terms of lewdness and ugliness. The movie...

    I used to learn photography at school, and I often shoot movies on a whim. They are all super short films that end in three or five minutes, and try to avoid plots. I always feel that this kind of homemade DV is made by classmates, and they don’t have any The experience in acting cannot reach the...

    A summary of the stories in the film

    Story 1: (quoted by a custom movie in Taiwan) The young and beautiful wife took advantage of the old rich man's blindness to go up a tree to meet his lover. At this time, the rich man suddenly regained his eyesight and saw the unbearable picture. The beautiful wife hurriedly explained. It's just an...

    Pasolini's Q&A on The Canterbury Tales

    Pasolini "Life Trilogy" CC Blu-ray Set

    This article is translated from Pasolini's "Life Trilogy" CC Blu-ray set booklet. Out of my love for Pasolini, I was surprised by his candid and unabashed attitude towards "sex" in the "Trilogy of Life", which makes people feel natural and beautiful, but does...

    "The Canterbury Tales" - Concentration Camp for Non-Connotative Dummies

    The Middle Ages in my impression are always full of incomprehensible contradictions: they both enjoy themselves in the days of strictly adhering to the rules and regulations, and they are proud of the relapses of stealing and slipping; Abide by moral constraints; it is a dark and bloody history,...
