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.

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.
