Winner of the Palme D'Or at Cannes and setting the standard for world cinema in 1960, Italian maestro Federico Fellini
(La Strada, 8 1/2
) dramatically opened the eyes of cinema goers and critics alike with this searing critique of a celebrity-obsessed, hedonistic world as seen through the eyes of a fluff-peddling journalist.
Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni
) is a gossip columnist and would-be novelist who chronicles "the sweet life'' of fading aristocrats, second-rate movie stars and aging playboys in high society Rome in the 50s. Armed with his "paparazzi", the philandering Marcello ultimately succumbs to loneliness and tragedy as he flees his obsessive, suicidal fiancee while vainly vying for the affections of a vivacious screen goddess (Anita Ekberg
). Showcasing the sexy and truly audacious romp in the famed Trevi Fountain in glistening high definition black and white, as well as including a treasure trove of special features, La Dolce Vita
remains a milestone of European cinema.
