Fellini's Roma Photos

Movie Info

As a young man, Fellini (Peter Gonzales) leaves his small Italian town to go to the big city of Rome, live in a boarding house and cavort with the natives in the 1930s and '40s. In an alternating storyline, the older Fellini (Federico Fellini) goes back to make a movie about Rome, filming things like traffic jams at the Colosseum and the subway system, which hides underground crypts. By inter-cutting this footage, Fellini the director draws comparisons to the old Rome and the new.

Audience Reviews for Fellini's Roma

  • Jan 18, 2016
    Fellini continues to experiment with the limits of structure and language after his previous films, this time to take a sharp, episodic and humorous look at the Rome of his youth, the Rome of then and his ambivalent feelings for this city (or his idea of it) that he seems to love and hate.

    I don't understand what everyone sees in this film. Maybe I'm too much of a pragmatist, but a plotless, lousy filmed, self indulgent movie seems a waste of time, even if Fellini is the director.

    Whereas some saw Fellini's nostalgic genius of the portrayal of Rome, some others saw a flawed obession. I'm, of course, in the second category. Nevertheless, the ride is immensely moving, not only empathizing with Italian citizens, but also with individuals that share the same passionate love towards their capital city. A "Buñuelian" structure and some blasphemous touches are the elements used by the Italian cinema legend to incongruently juxtapose his dreams and fantasies through an impressionistic lens, and although its impact is not as memorable as Amarcord, this sentimentalist predecessor does not disappoint. 83/100

    Surreal and funny (= felinesque), but the cinematography is awful, and that is a very important aspect in Fellini's cinema.
