The first of Pasolini’s colourful entertaining and highly erotic Trilogy of Life films The Decameron tells ten stories based on 14th century originals. Full of bawdy earthy spirit and presented in high definition restoration the film romps through its tales of sex and death – of lusty nuns and priests cuckolded husbands murdered lovers and grave robber – with five of the stories linked by the character of an intriguing artist played by Pasolini himself.
