Movie Info

Fellini's Roma is a virtually plotless autobiographical tribute to Rome, Italy, featuring narration by Fellini himself and a mixture of real-life footage and fictional set pieces. It flows from episode to episode, beginning with the director's early years arriving in Rome in 1931 during the time of Mussolini. Played by Stefano Mayore as a child, he visits the city with classmates and becomes infatuated. Played by Peter Gonzales at age 18, the young Fellini moves in to a tenement building and

The city that Federico Fellini explores for almost two hours bears little resemblance to the real Rome.

Fellini isn't just giving us a lot of flashy scenes, he's building a narrative that has a city for its protagonist instead of a single character.

A semi-docu, Fellini's Roma is as much about the eccentric director as it is about this endlessly fascinating city

Roma, a confounding and confused semi-documentary, tried the patience of even the most devoted Fellini fans.

What Fellini can't give us, is what's not in him--a true sense of the political and the art.

I'm pretty mixed over this film. It never did much for me, but I've never hated it, either. You either love Fellini, or you hate him. I guess I'm that weird anomaly that doesn't care.

Fellini is as firmly associated with Rome as Julius Caesar.

Audience Reviews for Roma (Fellini's Roma)

I think Fellini was quite self-indulgent during this period of his career, not really a problem if you're a fan of his work but those that are unfamiliar with his humour, editing style and love of Italy and its people should probably start with another film and leave this till last. I found it to be one of his funnier films, visually stunning but then also visually disappointing considering the brilliant Satyricon made just a few years previous. I really liked it though, it's a sort of mix between Satyricon and Amarcord and I find the three film compliment each other really well. If Fellini doesn't make you fall in love with Rome then no one will!

Can become a bit tiresome but cannot be judged from the point of view of plot and acting. It's a personal celebration of what the city of Rome means to the director, with its' history and its' huge variety of wild characters in the neighborhood. One can't deny the director's startling visuals.

Really fascinating film from Fellini. One day I'll make a movie about the place where I was born: Atlantis!

[font=Century Gothic][color=green]"Fellini's Roma" is Federico Fellini's enjoyable tribiute to the city he loved in his own inimicable style. He goes from the present to the past of World War II, while also providing an educational history lesson. Through it all, Fellini showed that he most enjoyed the company of the common man over the upper classes. The movie encompasses that in a very earthy demeanor.[/color][/font]
