Wondrous Boccaccio

May 8, 2016

My expectations from Taviani Brothers “Wondrous Boccaccio” (2015) movie were somehow different. True that the modern world is facing numerous plagues, specifically spiritual and economic, so the idea of a new “Decameron” is meant ‘to connect with the idea of escaping the ailments of contemporary society through the power of storytelling and love.’ However the parallel between the 14th century and today seemed somehow distant to me. Brilliant acting.
