Dir: Federico Fellini
Italy, 1987, 107 minmins, DCP
Cast: Sergio Rubini, Antonella Ponziani, Maurizio Mein
A moving ode to past cinematic glories, this pseudo-documentary ironically begins with a TV project by a Japanese crew. Leading the dumbfounded amateurs on a tour to Cinecittà as he prepares for his new film, Fellini takes on a magical, evocative trip through his tumultuous career, from eyes wide open to lifelong devotion. Imbued with warmth and wistfulness, the fragmented reminiscence evokes its most haunting moment, when Mastroianni the magician retrieves the iconic Trevi Fountain scene from La Dolce Vita . Anita Ekberg wipes off a tear. So do we.
