An upstanding Italian household is shaken and stirred when a handsome stranger arrives at the doorstep. He seduces every family member and then disappears. Each has an epiphany of sorts, but no one knows who the mysterious man was or why he appeared.
One of the most brilliant, radical thinkers—and, of course, filmmakers—of the 20th century, Pier Paolo Pasolini outdid himself with this enigmatic allegory. A meditation on Italy’s transformation from spirituality to consumerism, Theorem remains one of the most relevant critiques of modern life.
