The Canterbury Tales

I racconti di Canterbury

Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini
Italy, 1972


Eight of Geoffrey Chaucer’s lusty tales come to life on-screen in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s gutsy and delirious The Canterbury Tales, which was shot in England and offers a remarkably earthy re-creation of the medieval era.
