Description

Set against the backdrop of 14th century Florence, ten young men and women escape the black plague to a country estate where they spend their days telling stories of love, fate, and resurrection. From legendary Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani (Caesar Must Die), Wondrous Boccaccio is a visual and poetic tribute to the stories that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history, and the imaginations that quietly fueled them. Loosely based on five of Giovanni Boccaccio’s one hundred novellas in The Decameron, this beautifully shot interpretation is a celebration of life over death.
