Pasolini’s most stinging satire, set on Etna’s lava and in a very Germanic Italian villa, cross-cuts between two stories: one the tale of an unrepentant cannibal in the distant past, the other sketching the fate of a neurotic pig-lover in the present day. Pasolini mocks himself no less savagely than he parodies Godard. Plus The Paper Flower Sequence, Pasolini’s episode from Love and Anger (Amore e rabbia, 1969, 11min): Ninetto Davoli learns that ignorance is no excuse.
