A retelling of nine stories from Boccaccio’s “Decameron.”

The Decameron (Il Decameron) is a 1971 anthology film written and directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, based on Giovanni Boccaccio‘s 14th-century allegory. It is the first film of Pasolini’s Life Trilogy, which also includes The Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights. Each film was an adaptation of a different work of ancient literature, with a concentration on ribald and sometimes irreligious themes. The stories are filled with nudity, sex, slapstick, and scatological comedy.
