Pasolini, the great Italian director and poet, died in 1975, the victim of a horrifying homicide. The 17-year-old youth who bludgeoned him to death, then ran him over with the director's own car, claimed Pasolini made homosexual advances towards him. But whether this was the true motive was never satisfactorily answered. Pasolini's outspoken opposition to the ruling class and his sensational declarations may well have played a part in his untimely death. In this film, director Giordana explores what happened in the investigation and the trial that followed his death

Tu mi turbi ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the first sketch, the year is 5 A.D. and Benigni has to baby-sit for his old girlfriend Mary so she and her husband Joseph can have a night out. As Benigni is giving their child Jesus a bath, he muses philosophically about the nature of God and without a word, the little boy stands up on the bath water and leaves the outlines of his face on the bath towel. In the next segment, Benigni is in a quandary because his guardian angel, disillusioned with their relationship, has fallen in love with God and left him. In the third vignette, Benigni faces all-powerful banking bureaucrats in a bid for a loan to buy a house -- not an easy task because he is bully-proof, which alienates the chief fiscal bully, and the consequences are anything but a friendly loan. In the last sketch, Benigni is a guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and his antics (like talking into his sword on phone calls) drive his fellow guard to distraction." -- All Movie Guide
