  • And the Ship Sails On

    1983. Italy. Directed by Federico Fellini. With Freddie Jones, Barbara Jefford, Pina Bausch. A late Fellini masterwork, this opulent and lyrical vision of a world on the verge of decline is among the director’s most mournful and mysterious films. Ferretti created acres of plastic ocean and giant hydraulic jacks to trigger the wave-induced rolling movements in the ship, while an army of technicians burned naphthalene to create smoke. The enormous engine room, the battleship arrival, and a life-size model rhinoceros are among Fellini and Ferretti’s most iconic inventions. 132 min.
