Directed by Federico Fellini, Italy 1963
138 mins. Italian dialogue with English sub-titles

WINNER : BEST FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM AT 1964 OSCARS

 
Summary:
 
A famous movie director - a calculated self-portrait of Fellini himself perhaps - unable to find the inspiration to start his new film and harried by people in the industry, his wife and his mistress, retreats into personal recollections, dreams and fantasies.  Arguably Fellini's masterpiece.  Starring Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale and Anouk Aimée.  Winner of Best Foreign-language Film Oscar in 1964.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"A delightful piece of filmmaking full of imaginative flights of creative delirium and accomplished with wit, verve, style, grace and a tongue-in-cheek joy." (Sean Axmaker - MSN.com)
