Synopsis
Theorem: In a striking piece of sixties political cinema loaded with overt sexuality, the Italian provocateur lays a bomb in a stagnant Milanese bourgeois family with the arrival of a mysterious visitor, who sexually entrances every member, leaving each to a transcendent upheaval: from becoming sanctified, withdrawing into a catatonic state, to walking nakedly into the desert. Are these transformations the miracles of God or the tricks of Satan? Defiant, bizarre,and enigmatic, it still opens to whimsical interpretations on how the darkening void of social stigma engulfs the human soul.
What are the Clouds?: In Pasolini’s metatheatrical play of the Shakespearean tragedy, the actors-puppets playing a comic version of Othello and lago on stage are all of a sudden torn apart by the angry spectators. As the two puppets are disposed in a remote dump, they are ironically freed from manipulation. Seeing the blue sky for the first time, they admire the clouds stupefied.
