Rating:

Teorema is a mysterious dramatic film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini based on his very own novel of the same name that centers on an Italian family whose life is upturned with the appearance of an unknown wanderer (Terence Stamp) as he transforms their typical bourgeois life in a sexual awakening. No one is left untouched by his appearance as he seemingly offers some form of healing to every member of the household, even the devout maid, Emilia (Laura Betti) whose seduction leads to her spiritual epiphany. Though none of them knows anything about him, they all become involved, both sexually and emotionally. His ultimate disappearance shatters them as they start to seek out ways to fulfill themselves. Odetta (Anne Wiazemsky), the daughter, is left in a catatonic state. Lucia (Silvana Mangano), the mother, seeks out her sexual freedom in the arms of young men. The miserable father Paolo (Massimo Girott) throws off his materialistic needs and runs naked by the train tracks and fields. Lastly, Pietro (Andres Jose Cruz Soublette), the son, runs away from his family to become an artist. Though the visitor had been there for such a short time, his effect lasted a lifetime.moreless
