THE CANTERBURY TALES (I RACCONTI DI CANTERBURY)
Pasolini: A Film Series
Introduced by Ninetto Davoli!
1972. Italy. Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. With Pier Paolo Pasolini, Hugh Griffith, Josephine Chaplin, Ninetto Davoli Laura Betti. “The images are often bewitching, with Tonino Delli Colli’s color photography and Dante Ferretti’s art direction. Among the few studio interiors, for instance, the set for Geoffrey Chaucer’s study is given the determined exploratory perspective of a medieval painting by the use of a checkered floor and other convergent, geometrical forms. Mostly, however, the film uses actual locations, selected with no scholarship about period, but with a flair which gives exciting new aspects to familiar places” (David Robinson, The Times, June 15, 1973). In Italian; English subtitles. 123 min.
