Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini
Genre: Drama
Language: Italian (w/ english subs - hardsubbed)
Year Of Release: 1961

Pasolini's first film is a painfully realistic study of a pimp in Rome. Vittorio Accattone has never worked a day in his life, and has apparently made a good living prostituting his female companion, Maddalena. But her arrest begins his decline; hungry, he begs from churches and even visits his estranged wife and son. When Stella, a lovely and unbelievably innocent peasant worker, enters his life, Accattone tries to find a way, honest or not, to bring back good fortune...

A look at the shitty life of the periphery of Rome through the life of a lazy pimp, more sad than depressing really...
