A Fellini masterpiece, this follows the experiences of a famous Italian film director who struggles with the creative process. Fellini and Mastroianni once again team up to explore the porous boundaries between life, art and dreamlike imagination in this exhilarating circus-like comedy.

Lauded by Roger Ebert as “the best film ever made about filmmaking”, and spawning countless imitators from Woody Allen to Bob Fosse, this playful, deceptively autobiographical, Oscar-winning reverie on the mysteries of the artistic process is one of the landmark works of European art cinema. 

Hot on the heels of their worldwide success with La Dolce Vita, Fellini and Mastroianni once again team up to explore the porous boundaries between life, art and dreamlike imagination in this exhilarating circus-like comedy. Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimée and Barbara Steele. Music by Nino Rota.

An international success, this won Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Costume Design.
