Amore e rabbia (Love and Anger) is a 1969 anthology film that includes five films directed by five Italian directors and one French director. It premiered at the 19th Berlin International Film Festival in 1969.
The film is composed of episodes that deal with some of the themes present in Jesus' parables and anecdotes of the canonical gospels. These issues, however, are reproduced in the present from their directors.
A bishop is ill and about to die. Before he dies, the man has a vision of God, who tells him that his life has been misspent. The bishop realizes that he spent his life not properly respecting the gospel, but now it is too late.
The sequence of the paper flower
A beautiful smiling guy's walking on the streets of a city, bringing with him a large poppy paper. The boy is the goodness and innocence of youth, which is soon cut short by human wickedness. Indeed, while the merry boy is walking, the episode shows the evil done by man during the Second World War. At the end of the story, the boy is struck by lightning from the sky and dies, guilty of having been in his life a happy person and a good neighbor.
A woman and a man're arguing with each other. They represent democracy and the people's revolution that can not get along, although their ideas are similar.
