Summary
The second part of Pasolini's trilogy of Life (beginning with The Decameron and ending with The Arabian Nights) is based on the fourteenth century stories of Geoffrey Chaucer. Plunging with gusto into some of the blackest and bawdiest of the tales, Pasolini celebrates almost every conceivable sexual act with a rich, earthy humour and weaves visual magic which draws on the work of artists such as Bruegel and Bosch. Pasolini himself takes the part of Chaucer
