Intervista

Made to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cinecitta, the famous Roman film studio, Federico Fellini's 1987 feature, done in the pseudodocumentary style of Roma and The Clowns, is a fairly tired trip down memory lane—not entirely without its charms but a far cry from prime Fellini. The film alternates between Fellini's (fictional) preparations to shoot an adaptation of Kafka's Amerika and his memories of his first trip to Cinecitta as a young journalist (Sergio Rubini) to interview a glamorous movie star. After Marcello Mastroianni turns up in the present, Fellini invites him and a Japanese documentary film crew to visit Anita Ekberg's rural villa, where they watch silent clips from Fellini's La Dolce Vita. The film bears the same sort of relation to earlier Fellini that the dehydrated Love on the Run bears to earlier Truffaut. In Italian with subtitles.
