The Witches

In the mid-sixties, famed producer Dino De Laurentiis brought together the talents of five
celebrated Italian directors for an anthology film. Their brief was simple: to direct an
episode in which Silvana Mangano (Bitter Rice, Ludwig) plays a witch.

Luchino Visconti (Ossessione, Death in Venice) and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini
(Bicycle Thieves) open the film with The Witch Burned Alive, about a famous actress and
a drunken evening that leads to unpleasant revelations. Civic Sense is a lightly comic
interlude from Mauro Bolognini (The Lady of the Camelias) with a dark conclusion, and
The Earth as Seen from the Moon sees Italian comedy legend Totò team up with Pier
Paolo Pasolini (Theorem) for the first time for a tale of matrimony and a red-headed
father and son.

Franco Rosso (The Woman in the Painting) concocts a story of revenge
in The Sicilian s Wife, while Vittorio De Sica (Shoeshine) casts Clint Eastwood as
Mangano s estranged husband in An Evening Like the Others, concluding The Witches
with a stunning homage to Italian comic books.
