Summary

  • Ringmaster of dreams: Step into Fellini's world
     
    "All my films turn upon this idea&;there is an effort to show a world without love, characters full of selfishness, people exploiting one another, and, in the midst of it all, there is always&;and especially in the films with Giulietta&;a little creature who wants to give love and who lives for love."
    &;Federico Fellini

    Forever a circus ringleader at heart, Federico Fellini (1920&;1993) is remembered as one of cinema&;s greatest storytellers. From bittersweet, heart-wrenching tales (La Strada and Nights of Cabiria) to semi-autobiographical classics (La Dolce Vita and the much-imitated 8 1/2) to ambitious period-pieces (Satyricon and Casanova) to dreamlike pseudo-documentaries (The Clowns, Roma, and Intervista), Fellini brought his inner world to the silver screen in a profoundly original and innovative way. Among his many gifts to the world of cinema are the roles he created for his wife, the unforgettable Giulietta Masina.
