Product description

Ringmaster of dreams. This is the complete works of one of the most influential filmmakers. Forever a circus ringleader at heart, Federico Fellini (1920-1993) is remembered as one of cinema's greatest storytellers. From bittersweet, heart wrenching tales ("La Strada" and "Nights of Cabiria") to semi-autobiographical classics ("La Dolce Vita" and the much-imitated "81/2") to ambitious period-pieces ("Satyricon" and "Casanova") to dreamlike pseudo-documentaries ("The Clowns", "Roma", and "Intervista"), Fellini brought his inner world to the silver screen in a profoundly original and innovative way. Among his many gifts to the world of cinema are the roles he created for his wife, the unforgettable Giulietta Masina.

Review quote

"All my films turn upon this idea - there is an effort to show a world without love, characters full of selfishness, people exploiting one another, and, in the midst of it all, there is always - and especially in the films with Giulietta - a little creature who wants to give love and who lives for love." (Federico Fellini)"
