Pier Paolo Pasolini’s heavily Freudian filming of the Greek myth is bookended by the birth of a child in the 1930s and his maturity in the 1960s.
The present-day Oedipus becomes a blind beggar playing his flute on the steps of San Petronio, one of the world’s largest churches, on the Piazza Maggiore, while his boy, Angelo, chases pigeons in front of the Palazzo Communale.
