The final part of Pasolini's Trilogy of Life series was two years in the making. The locations - Yemen, Iran and Nepal - from a rich exotic backdrop to these tales of slaves and kings, potions, betrayals, demons and, most of all, love and lovemaking in all its myriad forms.


Engrossing, mysterious, profound and liberating, Arabian Nights is an exquisitely dreamlike, sensuous and adult interpretation of the original folk tales.
