Kaos / Chaos (1984) DVD9
"The Other Son", "Moonsickness", "The Jar", "Requiem", and "The Crow of Mizzaro" tell stories about struggling Sicilians battered by poverty. All of the five pieces are linked by the presence of a black crow which the audience is given a quick glimpse at during the opening scene of "The Other Son". The bird is largely used to enhance the film's visual referencing to traditional Sicilian customs and rules.

In the first story an old woman (Margarita Lozano) attempts to soften the pain from a past filled with misery. On a dusty crossroad where a group of immigrants prepare to leave Sicily she tells a powerful tale. In "Moonsickness" a young couple must confront old demons by learning to understand each other - the wife (Enrica Maria Modugno) discovers that her husband (Claudio Bigagli) is an epileptic with violent outbursts. "The Jar" follows the desperate efforts of Don Lollo (Ciccio Ingrassia), the owner of a fancy olive jar, as he attempts to figure out why it constantly breaks. In "Requiem" relatives battle each other while getting ready to bury their mother. Finally, in the film's epilogue, "Conversing with Mother", Luigi Pirandello (Omero Antonutti) recalls his childhood years while talking to the spirit of his deceased mother.
