Music for Movies: Nino Rota CentennialRepertory Series Archive

8 1/2

8 1/2 Fellini

Buy Tickets Passes OK

(1963) dir Federico Fellini w/Marcello Mastroianni, Anouk Aimée, Claudia Cardinale [138 min]

Fellini’s autobiographical masterpiece features his usual onscreen doppelganger Marcello Mastroianni as a film director who, suffering from pressure at work, escapes into a world of deepening nostalgic fantasy. Rota’s big-top-infused scores rarely seem more appropriate than here as Mastroianni becomes the ringmaster of his own internal circus.
