Directed by Pasolini

Pasolini at his grandest, presenting Callas as Medea, ‘captured’ lover of Jason. Isolated in a secular, urban life, Medea is sick for her agrarian home and culture. When Jason is unfaithful, she exacts a dreadful revenge. Callas’ performance is astonishing, the camera lingering on her immobile yet expressive face.
