Summary of the film: 1970 Italy-France-West Germany film. Director Pier Paolo Pasolini, starring Franco Citti, Ninetto Davoli, Jovan Jovanovic, length 112 min. An adaptation of nine stories from Bocaccio's "Decameron": A young man from Perugia is swindled twice in Naples, but ends up rich; a man poses as a deaf-mute in a convent of curious nuns; a woman must hide her lover when her husband comes home early; a scoundrel fools a priest on his deathbed; three brothers take revenge on their sister's lover; a young girl sleeps on the roof to meet her boyfriend at night; a group of painters wait for inspiration; a crafty priest attempts to seduce his friend's wife; and two friends make a pact to find out what happen= s after death. Pasolini is up to his old tricks satirizing the Church, and throwing in liberal doses of life and love. 
Ennio Morricone: was born 10 November 1928. is an Italian composer, orchestrator, conductor, and former trumpet player. Ennio Morricone studied at Rome's Santa Cecilia Conservatory, His score for that film, with its sparse arrangements, unorthodox instrumentation (bells, electric guitars, harmonicas, the distinctive twang of the jew's harp) and memorable tunes, revolutionized the way music would be used in Westerns, and it is hard to think of a post-Morricone Western score that doesn't in some way reflect his influence. His name will always be synonymous with the spaghetti Western....

He remains a controversial personality in Italy to this day due to his blunt style and the of some of his works on taboo sexual matters, but he is an established major figure in European literature and cinematic arts.

Summary of the music: The most of mainstream sites are marked the composer of the film is Ennio Morricone (or both Morricone and Pasolini). but we cannot find the film in the Morricone official web site. There is a explanation in the CHIMAI web site:"Ennio Morricone did not write or arrange any music for IL DECAMERON. He was only asked to advise on what music to use in the film, pre-existing music he had not written himself. The film's opening credits: "Music selected by the author [Pasolini] in collaboration with Maestro Ennio Morricone". So we can see that how important it is to unify the filmography's definition! Or at least the official website should have a definition of its own and make public to the world. Otherwise, it is not possible to unify that Everyone's understanding (inculde all web site and fans in the world, see our article here). The film's OST album has not yet been released up to now, may be related to this situation.

Without any album of the film is released up to now
