Synopsis
THE ANGER (made in 1963) taps into topics from the 1950s and the early 1960s, such as racism, the Middle East, Cuba, Stalinism, the Atomic bomb, and the death of Marilyn Monroe. The directors of the film - left-wing director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini and the conservative journalist and film director Giovanni Guareschi - employ documentary footage from the era and an accompanying commentary, in which they attempt to answer, quite elegantly and poetically, the existential question: Why are our lives characterised by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts and the directors of the respective sections offer the viewer contrasting analyses of, and prescriptions for modern society. This release is an uncut, restored version obtained from the Cinemateque of Bologna.
