Great Movie, 13 Feb 2011
Great adaptation of this timeless comedy written by Boccaccio. Of the 100 stories in the book Pasolini seems to have chosen chosen the sauciers ones.
Actors seem to all be amateurs yet adds to the mood of the movie, and captures the spirit of the book quite well - very risqué satire. Gave me a good few laughs over and over again.
Not to watch with the children (some sex scenes and full frontal nudity), but will certainly lift the spirits in a dark wintery night.
If you expect a holywood style production stay clear, if you want something that will make you think a bit while giving a laugh then go for it!
