  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Ballad of the Weeping Spring

    Fabulous music, amazing cast, incredible locations. Filmed in Israel, but it looks like it's another world. There's some electricity and a couple old VW's, but everything else looks like the 16th century. I think it was shot in the oldest parts of Jaffa...these are the locations Pasolini was looking for but couldn't find! And the people all look like Gypsies but from the Middle East. Eastern/Middle Eastern/Mizrachi
