    Review: Youth is insolent and stubborn , shameless and secretive . That old coaching inn in Canterbury was full of youthful bodies, hungry for each other and that he was focused a lot of weird and sexy stories in which morality and immorality are one, in which sin is a true expression of human feelings .

    ” The Canterbury Tales” in 1972 – the second part of the ” Trilogy of Life” by Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini . This film is much inferior to ” Decameron ” in romance , replacing it with naturalistic and frank eroticism on the brink of a foul, sometimes producing anti-aesthetic appearance. The viewer is waiting just eight short stories of the 22 included in the ” Canterbury Tales ,” Geoffrey Chaucer , and Pasolini very freely drawn from a literary source , to do so own mythology , joining in the stories Italian hedonism and British humor , going into the finals for a frank and vibrant religious provocation ( short story about sparing monk to go to hell ) .

    However , each story , whether it’s “The Story of the butler ,” ” Miller’s Tale ,” “The Story of Chef “, “The Story of the Merchant ” or “The Story of Carmelita ,” maintained morality is punishment for various bodily sins.
