Movie Info

Federico Fellini was one of the most acclaimed and influential filmmakers of his generation, but in his native Italy, he was also a full-fledged media personality. This documentary offers a glimpse of Fellini as both a filmmaker and an individual as he faces interviewers from the Italian television network RAI on several different occasions. RAI first catches up with Fellini in 1952 as he plugs his first feature film, Lo Sceicco Bianco. Later, Fellini is shown filming the well-known Trevi Fountain scene in La Dolce Vita, and he discusses the difficulties of the film's production. Later, Fellini is again visited on the set, this time while filming 8 1/2, and he discusses the more serious aspects of his work and his friendship with another famous international filmmaker of the day, Ingmar Bergman. Finally, the documentary offers a rare glimpse of The Journey of Mastorna, a film Fellini began in 1967 but was unable to complete. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Mesmo sem investigar o processo criativo de Fellini, o filme fascina por revelar a visão de mundo do inigualável cineasta.
