Pulcinella, a foolish servant, is sent to present-day Campania to grant the last wish of shepherd Tommaso: he must rescue a young buffalo called Sarchiapone. In the Royal Palace of Carditello, the ruins of which were once looked after by Tommaso, Pulcinella finds the buffalo and leads him North.

MUBI's take

A beguilingly shape-shifting film, Pietro Marcello’s documentary began as a portrait of the groundkeeper of an Italian palace until his subject’s untimely death transformed this project into something more fable-like and phantasmagoric. A nonfiction movie that goes beyond one’s expectations.
