Arabian Nights

Rated NC-17 155 minutes 1974

The third installment in director Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" films depicts a multiplicity of narratives culled from the famous Arabic anthology "The Book of One Thousand and One Nights." At the center is the story of Nur Ed Din (Franco Merli), a naif who purchases a slave girl, Zumurrud (Ines Pellegrini). The two fall in love, but Zumurrud is kidnapped soon after. She escapes her captors and, disguised as a man, ultimately becomes king of an exotic land.
