Marcello Mastroianni, Yvonne Furneaux, Anouk Aimée, Anita Ekberg
Part of the Fellini Season
Gossip columnist and would-be serious writer Marcello (Mastroianni), is caught in the morass of decadent Roman society in which he rootlessly and amorally wanders in search of himself. Perhaps Fellini’s most famous film, its notorious set-pieces (a vast statue of Christ is flown over Rome; Marcello and a bored heiress pick up a prostitute for a ménage-å-trois; Nadia Gray hosts an orgy at which she performs an immortal striptease; Anita Ekberg takes a dip in the Trevi Fountain) may have lost their capacity to shock, but the imaginative brilliance and wit of their construction is clearly evident.
