(aka "Theorem")

directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini

Italy 1968

"Teorema is Pasolini's meditation on lack of communication and understanding among bourgeoisie.  It's his "Discreet alienation of the bourgeoisie", if you will. The film is full of allegory images, that some find too pretentious. The eccentric Italian director's atmospheric tale of a prominent, dysfunctional Milanese family which engineers its own destruction when a spiritually minded stranger moves in on them."
