- Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini
- Writer: Geoffrey Chaucer; Pier Paolo Pasolini
- Producer: Alberto Grimaldi
It is Pasolini - therefore, you can expect lush, colourful sequences with atrocious acting, gratuitous nudity, and bad dubbing.
If this is your thing....then, you won't be disappointed.
There are 8 tales - as loosely based on Chaucer's work as an adaption can possibly be.
There are some well-known English-speaking actors, in bizarre parts, speaking Italian - strange.
No-one shines in this monstrosity.
Pasolini did not push boundaries - he simply fed his ego and, really, it is just too much to swallow.
