Mamma Roma: Having renounced her ignominious past, a former streetwalker reunites with her son, but an extortion scheme endangers her aspirations for a decent bourgeois life.
Love meetings: Director Pasolini traverses Italy in 1963 with camera and microphone interviewing people in public places about sex, marriage and gender roles.
The gospel according to Matthew: A cinematic rendition of the story of Jesus, from the nativity through the resurrection. The dialogue is taken directly from the Gospel of Matthew.

Oedipus Rex: Rescued from abandonment and raised by the King and Queen, Oedipus is still haunted by a prophecy--he'll murder his father and marry his mother.
Teorema: A handsome stranger enters the lives of a bourgeois Italian family, playing both God and the Devil as he proceeds to seduce each member, including the maid. His divine and diabolical interaction with each causes them to re-evaluate their belief systems.
Porcile: A darkly comic duet of stories starts with a tale of a man wandering in a volcanic desert forms a band of murderous cannibals. Then, a post-war German industrialist learns that his son is unable to make decisions or form relationships.
