Synopsis
Hawks and Sparrows:This fable-like comedy marks Pasolini's radical shift towards allegory and myth to embody his critical analysis of Christianity and Marxism doctrines. Taking a metaphorical stroll, a Chaplinesque father and his empty-headed son, accompanied by a philosophical talking crow, find themselves transported back 750 years to the time of St. Francis. Following the saint's instruction to convert the hawks and the sparrows to God's love, they are ironically enlightened to see the ambiguities and confusions of life, falling prey to imperialism, class conflicts and social divisions.
The Earth Seen from the Moon:Combining the Chaplinesque style and rhythm of silent comedy with a bright, playful colour palette, Pasolini crafts a surreal tale featuring a father and his son, whose search for a replacement of his deceased wife and mother has no luck until they find a mysterious deaf mute greenhaired woman, and discover that to be dead or alive is the same thing.
