"A gold mine...Gorgeous film clips!" - Village Voice

What sets this film apart from other portraits of Fellini is that director Damian Pettigrew-who knew Fellini fairly well after meeting him in 1983-was afforded a lengthy, privileged, unprecedented access to the man himself.

Novelist Italo Calvino illuminates the boundaries Fellini mapped between illusion and reality. Lifelong friends give insight into Fellini's boyhood, as well as his great creative marriage with actress Giuletta Masina. Screenwriter Tuillio Pinelli (whose credits include La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2 and The Voice of the Moon), cameraman Giuseppe Rotunno (who photographed Roma, Amarcord, Casanova, City of Women, And the Ship Sails On, among others), actors Donald Sutherland and Terence Stamp each contribute valuable insight into the Maestro's working methods, and madness.

Laced with interviews and classic clips, the film literally retraces Fellini's footsteps through dramatizing Fellini's vision and the same world minus that vision. What results is no mere portrait but an energetic, philosophical inquiry.
