Fellini's Roma

Movie Summary

Director:
Federico Fellini
Released:
1972
Rating:
R
Fellini's Roma is a 1927 comedy drama directed by the famous Federico Fellini. The film is virtually plotless and instead is an impressionistic visual ode to the city of Rome. It is an exciting and gaudy collection of sounds and images that celebrate the legendary and famed Italian capital. It also is partially autobiographical for Fellini as it reconstructs how he arrived in the city during the years of Mussolini's control. The film also shows other scenes from Mussolini's life such as a trip to a brothel and a visit to a circus like music hall. The film also features a movie company making a film about the city, which is a very meta move for Fellini. Interspersed with this autobiographical moments are snapshot about the city itself such as a huge traffic jam on the autostrada, a crazy journey through Rome after dark, an archaeological team going through Rome's subways, and an ecclesiastical fashion show.
