8 And A Half
  • 1963
  • Italy
  • 138 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Federico Fellini
  • Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimée, Sandra Milo

Showing in a pristine new 35mm print. Many regard this moody magnum opus as the Italian maestro's finest hour. Following a scenario not unlike the one that faced Fellini himself when he was under pressure to come up with a sequel to the massive international success of 'La Dolce Vita', Mastroianni plays a filmmaker plagued by intellectual insecurity and Catholic guilt as a weird selection of actresses, financiers, writers and hucksters dog his every move. As ever with Fellini, it's all about spectacle rather than ideas, but the show is a sparkling one.

Fashion photographer Thomas (Hemmings) becomes bored with his life of 60s excess. Frustrated with the superficial nature of the fashion world, he takes clandestine photographs of the meeting between two strangers in a park – a woman (Redgrave) and an older man. Thomas initially thinks he has merely snapped evidence of an embarrassing affair. But, as he is tracked down for the photographs, he realises that he could possess proof of murder. Seminal Antonioni.
