The Black Death rages through the city of Florence in the year 1348. To escape the horror, a group of aristocratic young men and women journey to a country estate where they regale each other with stories. In the interlude between stories, they romp through the countryside reaffirming their love of life. Based loosely on the famed medieval text The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio, this historical drama is a visual tribute to the tales that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history. Boasting gorgeous locations and a cast of Italian all-stars, the visuals in the story are outstanding. Frédéric Boyer, a film critic with the Tribeca Film Festival said, “As interpreted by the modern-day masters of Italian cinema, Wondrous Boccaccio is an invitation to experience the narrative charm of one of the greatest European storytellers of all time.” [2015, Italy, Runtime: 120 minutes, Italian with English subtitles, Not Rated]
