Critic Reviews for Ginger e Fred (Ginger and Fred)
When, as happens on several occasions, Amelia and Pippo become an integral part of the impressionistic film that surrounds them, instead of just being witnesses to it, Ginger and Fred ranks with the best work Mr. Fellini has ever done.
The film isn't a particularly pleasurable experience (the satire of television is broad and wayward, and the attempts to wring pathos from Ginger and Fred's geriatric infirmities fall far short of the mark), but it does have a cranky, old-man's integrity.
The scenes in and around the television studio, as the two forlorn old troupers come to terms with the punkish fauna of the 1980s, are -- for this director -- strangely verveless and unfocused.
Marks the first pairing of Fellini veterans Marcello Mastroianni and Giulietta Masina and, from their instant chemistry, you'd think they'd been together for years.
A warm and very human story about two people who share a little bit of love, interwoven with director Fellini's diatribe against the inanity of the modern television age.
Audience Reviews for Ginger e Fred (Ginger and Fred)
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.
A really great film, just inventive and hilarious, and no matter what age Marcello Mastroianni is just the most awesome person on the planet. The film starts out kinda slow, but definitely ramps up and is entertaining to watch multiple times. It might be one of Federico Fellini's last films, but it's still great!
I liked it. It very funny in some parts, especially the bits making fun of the ridiculous excesses of television and the way it tries to cash in on nostalgia. The two main actors were wonderful, Giulietta Masina in particular. This is my first Fellini film, so I don't know how it compares to his others, but I think I want to see more.
