This gorgeously shot, surreal feature about a middle-aged usewife, Fellini's first work in color, stars his wife Masina in their last collaboration together.
| Original Score: A-
| Original Score: 5/5
Gaudy, more integrated than later Fellini, but this take on feminine psyche lacks vision.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
| Original Score: 4/5
Surreal and, yes, haunting.
| Original Score: 3/5
It is arguably Fellini's most personal masterpiece, but those who may have stumbled upon it and don't know much about Fellini's films most certainly couldn't choose a better one to start with.
| Original Score: 94/100
despite Fellini's indulgences, much of the film works largely due to Giulietta Masina's fine performance
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A dazzling technical achievement, from the color to the tracking shots that delight in running down every detail of Juliet's companions.
The movie that swirls around Masina is a dazzling -- and, for some, incoherent -- production deep into the feminine psyche.
The film is just wonderfully ... well, Fellini-esque.
| Original Score: B+
It never less than dazzling to look at.
| Original Score: 4/4
A mad, resplendent peacock of a film, a cinematographic riot of color and sensuality that evokes its era -- the swinging mid-'60s -- as much as any movie made during those giddy years.
At once an eye-popping display of bravura and a work of compassionate insight.
Fellini stands on the brink, desperately grabbing at bits of his past, and boldly looking forward to a new future of decadence and garish color (this was his first in color).
| Original Score: 3/4
Despite Fellini's best efforts to make her seem dull, Masina anchors the film with her clear-eyed portrayal.
Fellini went deliriously and brilliantly bananas with the color to create a rollicking through-the- looking-glass series of tableaus evoking a woman's troubled psyche.
Visually splendid piece of eye candy that hides behind its gaudy exteriors an emptiness and lack of vision.
