Pasolini's first film is a painstakingly realistic visual of being a pimp in Rome. Vittorio Accattone has never worked a day in his life, and has apparently made a good living prostituting his female companion, Maddalena. But when she is arrested, Accattone begins to decline and beg for money. That it is until he encounters a lovely and unbelievably innocent peasant worker, who may be his ticket back to his way of life.
