1960 · Rome
Fellini's most pivotal film, if not his finest. Unlike the more sentimental and abstract films that would follow, "La Dolce Vita" is an unflinching 7-day journey through 1960s Rome, with Mastroianni, a jaded journalist at the center of the story, constantly surrounded by revelry, beautiful women, and a beautiful city, but no semblance of happiness or love. Winner of the Palme d'Or at The Cannes Film Festival and The Academy Award for Best Costume.
Shot on location in Rome and Vatican City, Italy.
12 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine.
