In 1949, schoolteacher Pier Paolo Pasolini is accused of statutory rape. No complaint has been lodged: the carabinieri act only basing themselves on rumors going around. As a result, Pier Paolo is both excluded from the communist party and banned from teaching. Forced to leave Friuli, he chooses to go to Rome. His mother, who has accompanied him, becomes a cleaning lady there but, for his part, the young man cannot find work. Written by Guy Bellinger

tears for what?
14 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Oh, poor Pier Paolo...oh, those plebeians, so heavily underestimated him...all boys do such things...all so very delicate and poetic...

Oh my gosh, the adult convicting a sexual offence against immature boys!!! This adult is a teacher. Though the event that comes into the sight of the police is not related to school.

OK, very sorry for the guy, for such desires that are unfortunately given to him. But in all this poetic way it is being actually said (in the film) that, yes, he has an (wicked) attraction to the young boys, so what - fall in tears that he is not allowed to work in school?

Music - OK, the black-and-white picture of 1949 - OK, but the feeling/the mood/the idea - ?
