A landmark film by four great directors of their time, each contributing a short within this feature. Pasolini’s La Ricotta is a dazzling amalgam of trenchant social satire, neo-realism, pathos and burlesque comedy. Pa...展开solini was put on trial through a Fascist law that was still on the books, and sentenced to four months in prison, eventually amnestied, and all of RoGoPaG was banned. Rossellini's Virginity is one of the neo-realist master's rare essays in comedy - a richly satiric commentary on the subject of illusion and reality, a fundamental question in the cinema. Godard's The New World is the fascinating precursor to the director's full-length masterpiece Alphaville. It presents a glacial view of a post-apocalyptic Paris narrated by the only person unaffected by an atomic explosion. Finally, in The Range-Grown Chicken by Ugo Gregoretti, Ugo Tognazzi (La Cage Aux Folles) plays the frazzled head of a middle-class family who has been brainwashed by the slogans of consumerism.
