Cinemambulante pt. 1
Showing of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Accattone
“Even before I started thinking about Accattone, when I was just pondering generally about doing a film, I felt I could only have used Bach’s music to accompany it. This was partly because he is my favorite composer, and partly because I find his music unique – it is absolute music.” Tackling his first film, therefore, Pasolini had already decided that the sound track would have to be by Bach. He had fallen for the composer in his springtime in Friuli, at Casarsa, where he heard the violinist Pina Kalc. Using Bach’s music to accompany a film set in the inner suburbs where the lowest of the low lived through episodes of violence and prostitution aroused astonishment and even scandal! Ennio Morricone, however, noted rightly that Bach’s music with this film formed part of the history of the cinema. Hans Werner Henze applauded the choice, noting that “selecting this music, like its author, stood on the side of the people, those humiliated and offended”.
