  • La Dolce Vita

    1960. Italy. Written and directed by Federico Fellini. With Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimée, Yvonne Furneaux. “To address Fellini’s La Dolce Vita in seventy-five words is blasphemy—a quickie replacing an orgy. The sensual 1960 masterpiece is expansive, a feast, the definition of what it was to live the good life in postwar Rome for a people who knew suffering and deprivation, and defiantly chose life. Anita Ekberg is Venus incarnate, a statue that has stepped off her pedestal into the audience’s open arms—and those of the magnetic Marcello Mastroianni! Magnifico!” (Thelma Adams, Us Weekly). NYFCC Best Foreign Film, 1961. In Italian; English subtitles. 174 min.
