FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE NARRATIVE

WONDROUS BOCCACCIO

TFF 2015 Directed by Paolo Taviani and Vittorio Taviani
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE WONDROUS BOCCACCIO [TFF 2015]
Set against the backdrop of a 14th century, black plague-stricken Florence, ten young men and women escape to a country estate where they spend their days telling stories of love, fate, and resurrection. From legendary Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, directors of the Palme d’Or winning Fiorile and Golden Bear award-winning Caesar Must Die, Wondrous Boccaccio is a visual and poetic tribute to the stories that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history, and the imaginations that quietly fueled them.

The Tavianis’ interpretation of Boccaccio’s The Decameron focuses on five of the 100 stories included in the classic Italian masterpiece. As interpreted by the modern-day masters of Italian cinema, Wondrous Boccaccio is an invitation to experience the narrative charm of one of the greatest European storytellers of all time.
