Pier Paolo Pasolini,
Pasolini's film debut!
Pasolini created a masterpiece with ACCATTONE, his first feature film. It tells the story of a young man in a suburb of Rome who keeps himself afloat working as a pimp and a thief. The naturalistic images from the world of the subproletariat come together to create both a realistic narrative and a modern story of passion.
For ACCATTONE Filmgalerie 451 holds only the DVD- and cinema-rights for german-speaking territories. German version and original Italian version with German subtitles only.
