Arabian Nights

The final part of Pasolini's 'Trilogy of Life' series, following 'The Decameron' and 'The Canterbury Tales', was two years in the making. The locations - Yemen, Ethiopia, Iran and Nepal - form a rich, exotic backdrop to these tales of slaves and kings, potions, betrayals, demons and, most of all, love and lovemaking in all it's myriad forms. Engrossing, mysterious, profound and liberating; an exquisitely dreamlike, sensuous interpretation of the original folk tales, praised by novelist and Arab scholar Robert Irwin as '...wonderful...the only version made for adults'.
