PIER PAOLO PASOLINI

Love Meetings

Comizi d'Amore

Pier Paolo Pasolini interviews hundreds of Italians diverse in occupation and social class about their opinions on concepts such as eroticism, love, homosexuality, divorce, and prostitution. Author Michel Foucault wrote of the film: “This is an invaluable document . . . Those who are questioned stubbornly insist on couching their answers in legalistic language . . . What runs through the film is . . . an uncertainty vis-à-vis a new regime, which was just emerging in Italy at the time, the regime of tolerance.”
