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.

Visually splendid piece of eye candy that hides behind its gaudy exteriors an emptiness and lack of vision.

Gaudy, more integrated than later Fellini, but this take on feminine psyche lacks vision.

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.

despite Fellini's indulgences, much of the film works largely due to Giulietta Masina's fine performance

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.
William Arnold

August 31, 2001
The film is just wonderfully ... well, Fellini-esque.

Chicago Tribune

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.
Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid
June 13, 2001
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).

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.

Juliet is never less than eye-catching, but is rarely more.
