The Hawks and The Sparrows

Manufacturer Part No: WBF4039
"The Hawks and the Sparrows," a wildly comic fable, stars the beloved stone faced clown Toto as an Italian everyman, and Ninetto Davoli as his good-natured but empty headed son.  Pasolini uses a comic crow, which philosophizes amusingly and pointedly about the passing scene as a counterpoint to the performers, representing humanity, as they progress down the road of life.  This tragic fable is a delight that captures the peril of two innocents caught in the paradox of Italian life between the Church and the State.
