‘Canterbury’ is a funny movie. Very effectively true to the period. You can almost smell the stench of the Medieval life, hog slop and night jars. Most of Pasolini’s actors are amateurs cast on location. Pasolini was also a poet. http://direland.typepad.com/direland/2005/10/a_hitherto_unpu.html
Everyone raves about ‘Arabian Nights’ being the best from the trilogy, but I think it’s his weakest. Though I have trouble choosing between ‘Canterbury’ and ‘The Decameron’. Ironically enough, Vivarelli’s knock-off ‘The Black Decameron’ was more popular than Pasolini’s.

Thanks for the movie, I enjoyed it immensely.
