Streghe, Le (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

This 1966 Italian/French movie was directed by Mauro Bolognini, Vittorio De Sica, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Franco Rossi, and Luchino Visconti. It was also known as Les Sorcières and, in the United States, The Witches.

The movie is actually an anthology of five different directors' works from the previous year. Each tells a story about witches. The five stories are: "The Witch Burned Alive," "Civic Sense," "The Earth as Seen from the Moon," "The Girl from Sicily," and "A Night Like Any Other." Silvia Mangano appears in all five. Clint Eastwood stars in the last of the five.

Per noi e sorprendente vedere che teologi e medici di grande levatura credano che le streghe davvero volino a congregarsi presso il noce di Benevento, e che il diavolo possa inseminare una donna a grande distanza.
