(Federico Fellini, Italy 1960, 174 min., 35mm, Italian w/subtitles)

A match was made in heaven as director Federico Fellini and actor Marcello Mastroianni work together for the first time in this Italian classic. Mastroianni stars as a tabloid journalist living and writing “the sweet life” whose Dionysian nights of excess are losing their gleam in the sobering dawns. Searching for meaning and satisfaction, he plans a novel, but Roman women and wine tempt with their powerful intoxications. Fellini and cinematographer Otello Martelli capture iconic, unforgettable images, including the shots of a helicopter-carried Christ statue, the echo chamber, and the dawn Mass.
