Product Details

Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Felliniís 8Ĺ (Otto e mezzo) turns one manís artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for 8Ĺ was The Beautiful Confusion, and Felliniís masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.
