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.

This is pure poetry. Pasolini shows us a photograph of Italy after the war traveling to the main cities and talking to people trying to understand what kind of basis we were creating for the society of the future.

Pasolini himself interviews people from different strata of society with a certain candour regarding sex. A lot of the views from the 60s come across as old-fashioned, repressed and conservative, even politically incorrect, in today's context while Pasolini tries to provoke with questions. Interesting to see and hear how it once was in Italy of the 60s. Pasolini must have been disappointed with the truth.

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.

Pasolini's cinema verite journey though his homeland to question folks how they feel about sex and politics. A rather striking documentary given the fact Pasolini takes no journalistic stance, instead prodding those to speak openly their opinions, alot of which show just how many Italians at the time were conformists.

PPP s'essaye au cinema-verite.

all the things pasolini says are politically oriented, and specially sex in his poetry means power. he studied power, overall, cultural position of some common topics and dinamics. sex in particular was analized radically differently in two periods. this is first.

Pasolini strides around Italy asking the population various questions pertaining to sex. Interesting not for their answers, which are pretty much what you'd expect given the date & the country, but rather for the glimpse it gives of Pasolini discovering, to his dismay, how entrenched in conformism most of his fellow countrymen & women are. He also significantly fails to keep a journalistic distance, playing the agent provocateur throughout & trying to stir things up sexually and, more importantly, politically.
