Master Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini beautifully re-imagines Euripides' ancient Greek tragedy with Maria Callas in the title role. In this haunting tale, Medea sacrifices everything to win the heart of Jason, captain of the Argonauts, but when he spurns her love, Medea exacts a scorching revenge that destroys everyone in its path.
