"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container

Trama: Sedotta e poi abbandonata nel corso di un viaggio da Marcello, un playboy di provincia, la giovane aspirante soubrette Aida si mette sulle tracce del ragazzo e trova la casa in cui abita, nel parmigiano. Ma Marcello le si nega e demanda al fratello minore, il sedicenne Lorenzo, il compito di trovare una scusa che la metta fuori pista. Lorenzo rimane colpito da Aida e dalla sua sofferenza e, quasi con patimento, riesce a sviare la ragazza, la quale, il giorno seguente, lo chiama a casa. Lorenzo si reca nell'alberghetto in cui la ragazza risiede e questa cerca di vendergli un ferro da stiro. Capito lo stato in cui versa Aida, Lorenzo le presta cinquemila lire e passa con lei la giornata. Alla sera la introduce, facendola passare per la cugina, in un hotel di lusso, nel quale la ragazza pare accettare la corte di tre maturi imprenditori. Stanco di quello che ha visto durante una serata di festa (Aida che lo ignora danzando con uno dei tre uomini), Lorenzo decide di andarsene, ma il successivo chiarimento con la giovane lo porta a dichiararsi prendendole con dolcezza la mano. Il giorno seguente Aida è alla stazione di Parma e attende Piero, il suo ex fidanzato - e direttore dell'orchestra in cui la ragazza cantava - dal quale è fuggita in compagnia di Marcello. Lorenzo corre alla stazione e per non perdere Aida le comunica che è riuscito a trovare Marcello. Ma al presunto appuntamento con il ragazzo si presenta l'insegnante di Lorenzo, don Pietro, che induce la ragazza ad abbandonare la città. Aida ritorna quindi a Riccione, dove Piero la accoglie in malo modo. Prende le sue difese un amico di Piero che dice di essere un regista cinematografico: ma l'uomo cerca di approfittare di Aida. Intanto giunge a Riccione Lorenzo, che si azzuffa con il sedicente regista per onore della sua amata. Dopo un momento molto intimo in spiaggia, Lorenzo parte e torna a Parma, lasciando ad Aida una cospicua somma di denaro e una notevole solitudine

La rabbia : un film in due parti = The anger : a film in two parts( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in Italian and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Rabbia employs documentary footage (from the 1950's) and accompanying commentary to attempt to answer the existential question, Why are our lives characterized by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts, and the directors of these respective sections, left-wing Pier Paolo Pasolini and conservative Giovanni Guareschi, offer the viewer contrasting analyses of and prescriptions for modern society."
