This is the second film of this director about Pasolini. I find the idea of making small biographies, instead of one big biography, about Pasolini an interesting one. And this film is concentrating on the period when Pasolini had to move, with his mother, from his small village in North Italy to Rome. It is than a shame that the film doesn't reveal much about the man. Yes he had a hard time, when he needed to move but that's it. And the film ends quite abruptly leaving the audience wonder why was this period so important in Pasolini's life. Pasolini is a figure full of contradiction and passion. He is a wonderful subject for a film, but this film miss all the passion. If you want to learn about Pasolini go and watch his films, read his writing. Pasolini deserve a cinematic biography that would give him the credit he so much deserves.
