Fellini’s Roma (DVD)

Acclaimed director Federico Fellini (Fellini’s Satyricon, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2) brilliantly demonstrates why he is regarded as the last of the great epic filmmakers, delivering a thrilling personal memoir with this monumental and outlandish tribute to his beloved Rome, The Eternal City. This lavish autobiography, full of lush fantasy sequences and monumental pageantry, begins with Fellini as a youngster living in the Italian countryside. In school he studies the eclectic but parochial history of ancient Rome and then is introduced as a young man to the real thing arriving in this strange new city on the outbreak of World War II. Here, through a series of visually stunning vignettes brimming with satire and spark, the filmmaker comes to grips with a sprawling, boisterous, bursting-at-the-seams portrait of Rome, reinterpreting with his inimitable style an Italian history full of rich sensual imagery and extravagant perception.
