Critics reviews

It counteracts a lack of consistency by providing a fascinating snapshot of a culture and director in flux: The neorealist boat had sailed, Italian communist leader Palmiro Togliatti had died two years earlier, Totò would die the following year, and Pasolini would make TEOREMA two years later, using mostly professional actors for the first time in his career.
