Strong retelling of Pasolini's murder
18 July 2000 | by (Bruges, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This film focuses on the events and the investigation after Pasolini's murder. Pier Paolo Pasolini was one of Italy's greatest and controversial poets. He was however not only known for his words, but also for his deeds, especially the sexual ones and mostly with younger boys. It is no secret that he often angered the leading Italian politicians of his time, which was a very troubled time in his country. In this way it's interesting to take a closer look at his murder, because there was obviously more to it than meets the eye.

This film is a strong insight in the life of Pasolini. While focusing on the police investigation of his murder, we get to know more about his life. I didn't know Pasolini(or his work) very well, but after having seen this film I'm determined to learn more about him as soon as possible.

However, don't expect to much of this little documentary/film either. It's not a great history lesson, but it offers bits and pieces of the life(and murder) of an interesting man. What one makes of it from there on is up to the viewer. Certainly worth a look! 7/10
