Vittorio Taviani in Kaos

Kaos

1984 R

Magic, drama, horror and humor are all evoked in this adaptive collection of five tales of Sicilian peasantry, based on short stories by renowned playwright Luigi Pirandello and directed by the acclaimed Taviani brothers. Adhering to the stark sense of realism that is a hallmark of Italian cinema, each vignette examines a varied point of view to convey a sense of understanding and compassion for ordinary people and their extraordinary plights.
