Federico Fellini

La Dolce Vita

174' - 1960 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: German, Italian, French, English
Director: Federico Fellini With: Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimee
The picture begins as Romans are shocked by seeing a statue of Jesus being carried over the city by a helicopter. Following in a second chopper is a gossip writer for the local scandal sheets. He aspires to serious writing but never gets around to writing anything beyond what he writes for lire. While visiting a local nightspot he meets a wealthy heiress suffering from a huge case of ennui. Everything bores her and she is constantly on the lookout for new thrills. Together they pick up a hooker and spend the night as a menage a trois in the prostitute's room. La Dolce Vita is a classic film that blends vision, humor, darkness, nobility, and tawdriness to form a total cinematic experience. (CineBooks' Motion Picture Guide)
