Audience Reviews for Comizi d'amore (Love Meetings)

This one was way out of my league, 1/2 star

I couldn't think of a better pre-Valentine day film to watch than Pier Paolo's venture into cineme verite. Italy, North and South, bourgeousie and worker, young and old, PP hears the voice of Italy in its confused, archaic, outmoded, sexist, unquestioned beliefs about sexuality. Discussion with the reigning intellegentsia are tellingly juxtaposed. Do these interviews represent the true Italy? PP asks Moravia. Yes and no, is the response. There is still a part of the Italian consciousness that does not speak of sexuality, yet what was revealed in the interviews was uninformed and beheld sexuality as almost sacrosanct. Concluding with the images of a marriage and its blessing is a hopeful promise for a more conscious future. This exploration remains relevant and undated.

Not entirely a great documentary- too personal sometimes from Pasolini even as he is a strong interviewer- but it is essential viewing for anyone into Cinema Verite, or for anyone wanting a peek at Italian perspectives in the mid 60s.
