I Racconti di Canterbury (The Canterbury Tales) Reviews

Page 1 of 1
James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

the brash, arguably campy manner in which Pasolini transcribes Chaucer's medieval bawdiness to the screen, coupled with the film's various technical faults (particularly the lousy dubbed dialogue), tends to make the film a chore to watch.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

After the formidable commercial success of his bawdy Decameron, Pier Pasolini applied the same formula to Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales with somewhat less appealing results.

If Pasolini had something more than grubby fantasy on his mind -- and presumably he did -- it isn't immediately apparent.

Robust and smart, much like its more expansive source material.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

In contrast to the Italy of Pasolini's Decameron, the England of The Canterbury Tales is much more harsh in its treatment of vice of all kinds.

It can be hard going at times, especially with the post-production dubbing of sound and the blank, detached acting Pasolini demanded, but it also contains some very funny and superbly-shot sequences.
