Product Description

Exactly what the title says - four features from Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini. Features I Vitelloni (1953), La Dolce Vita (1960), 8 1/2 (1963) and Guilietta degli Spiriti (1965). From the sharply observed account of the social mores of Italy in the 1950s in I Vitelloni, through the satire of a society obsessed with celebrity and sensation of La Dolce Vita, to the world of filmmaking in 8 1/2 and the exploration of desire in Giuietta degli Spiriti, Fellini's world is engrossing, fantastical, satirical and thoughtful, and shot through with his own preoccupations. They have won numerous awards (Palme d'Or and Oscar for La Dolce Vita, Oscar for 8 1/2 among them) and are filled with indelible images..

3.0 out of 5 stars Truly great films - shame about the subtitles 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Too often these days, box sets contain minor works rather than a director's best. Four Films From Fellini is a welcome exception.
So I was frustrated to find that quite a few utterances or sentences don't have subtitles.
I know some French and Spanish and have seen quite a few Italian films, so the uncaptioned bits weren't entirely unintelligible, but they were still hard work. I watched the first half hour of I Vitelloni from this set, and then from a Criterion version online for comparison. Criterion won hands down, and their subtitles made the experience entirely enjoyable. (Criterion have never released La Dolce Vita though, just the other three films in this set.) It's about time British DVD labels got their act together to produce subtitles of equal quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Fellini 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

Viva Fellini!

To see these four films is to be given a deeper understanding of how film has developed over the last fifty years but also to have a sense of what has been lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fellini buff 27 July 2013

'La Dolce Vita' and '8.5' are probably the better known of the four but don't let that put you off. You can never have too much Fellini in your DVD collection.
