La Dolce Vita (1960) (RC)
Release Date: September 21, 2004.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times.
Federico Fellini's award winning masterpiece. Winner of an Academy Award and the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Federico Fellini's masterpiece gave the world the term "paparazzi," and catapulted Fellini into the pantheon of visionary directors. Marcello Mastroianni stars as tabloid reporter Marcello, the role that made him an international sensation. Marcello's beat is Rome's international jet-set, an exotic world indelibly brought to life by Fellini's iconic images and composer Nino Rota's classic score. In pursuit of the next big scandal, Marcello is continually seduced and repulsed by the hedonistic lifestyle of the rich, amoral and bored to whom nothing is sacred. Marcello's unforgettable encounters with an American sexpot (Anita Ekberg), his wealthy lover (Amouk Aimée), his suicidal girlfriend, his cultured mentor, and his estranged father lay bare the emptiness behind the glitz of "the sweet life." The most talked about film of its day, La Dolce Vita is a towering achievement in world cinema, and one of the most popular and influential films of all time. -- (C) Koch Lerber Films, 1960, Italy/France.
