Movie Info

In Italy, dancers Pippo (Marcello Mastroianni) and Amelia (Giulietta Masina) -- once famous for their impersonations of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers -- reunite to perform one last ballroom routine on the TV show "We Are Proud to Present." Now both show biz has-beens, Pippo and Amelia are billed alongside a veritable circus sideshow of dwarfs and celebrities. Soon the aging dancers take to the stage and transform the vulgar spectacle into a magical re-imagining of 1930s Hollywood.

    What seems at first like a harmless condemnation of television as an insane, ridiculous circus (and as such it comes off as a silly, dated and mostly unfunny film) soon turns out to be a truly melancholy and touching experience, with Masina and Mastroianni shining together.

    Giulietta Masina and Marcello Mastroianni play Rogers and Astaire imitators who are professionally reunited after being apart for some 35 years. Masina and Mastroianni, themselves in their golden years here, are finely and most appropriately cast as figures from a nostalgic long ago. <p>Fellini definitely is no fan of the television generation that has displaced true entertainers like Ginger and Fred, and as Masina says in the end, "We will never dance again." In fact, both actors were very near the end of their careers and their lives. I'll label this one "bittersweet" as well.

    I love Fellini. This one is charming more than bizarre, but it's got plenty of bizarre in it.
