Storyline

This consists of four short films by different directors. Rosselini's 'Chastity' ('Illibatezza') deals with an attractive air hostess who receives the unwelcome attentions of a middle aged American. Godard's 'New World' ('Il Nuovo Mondo') illustrates a post-apocalypse world the same as the pre-apocalyptic one but for an enigmatic change in attitude in most people, including the central character's girlfriend. In Pasolini's 'Curd Cheese' ('La Ricotta'), a lavish film about the life of Jesus Christ is being made in a poor area. The impoverished people subject themselves to various indignities in the name of moviemaking in order to win a little food. The central character is hoisted up on a cross for filming, and dies there. Finally comes Gregoretti's 'Free Range Chicken' ('Il Pollo Ruspante') in which a family of the materialist culture inadvertantly illustrate the cynical, metallic voiced doctrine of a top sales theorist.

Trivia

Orson Welles, who portrays a director directing a Biblical epic in this film's 'La Ricotta' story, ironically had earlier directed himself in his own scenes in an actual Biblical epic, David and Goliath (1960). Welles, who portrays a king in the Biblical epic David and Goliath (1960), also narrates another Biblical epic about the King of kings, King of Kings (1961). Welles even narrates a portion of the Biblical work The New Media Bible: Book of Genesis (1979) as well. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Little by little, I became jealous. Only now do I see how that stopped me from reasoning clearly. I ought to have understood that all this was only the consequence of the end of the world.

Four Rooms it's not...
8 March 2000 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

Four short films by three Italians and one Jean-Luc Godard on our "new" era still seem fresh (especially Gregoretti's segment) after nearly thirty years. They all share the pessimistic thread that the world is becoming worse and individuals no longer control the course of their own lives. Each part is engrossing, yet The Range-Grown Chicken (Part IV) is particularly brilliant. Structuring a film on consumerism from the perspectives of a commercially bombarded father and a capitalist professor sets up a great division between consumerism and free will. Overall, interesting and worth seeing.
