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.
