Its ages since i last looked at a film by Federico Fellini. Has the old master lost his charm or visual flair, I wondered?
Well, this reasonably-priced box set says 'No'.
La Dolce Vita still resonates, especially in our world now obsessed with 'celebrity' while the moving account in Giulietta Degli Spiriti of a woman struggling with her husband's infidelity is as powerful as ever.
The star of the show, however, is 81/2. This is Fellini's masterpiece, still audacious, hugely inventive and often very funny.
