Reviews

Fellini's first full length colour feature is a joyous and stunning cinematic classic. Giulietta Masina (Fellini's real life wife) gives a superb performance as the bored, timid, frumpy and ultimately unfulfilled housewife who suspects her husband is being unfaithful. In an effort to escape the hurtful reality of her situation she enters a surreal fantasy world of her own by conjuring up spirits who lead her into a world of sensual pleasure.

Format: DVD
This flamboyant film may be the most "felliniesque" of them all. In a partly autobiographical story, Giulietta (Fellinis real life wife, Giluetta Masina) reacts to her husbands adultery by entering a surreal dreamworld. Guided by spirits she struggles to cope with visions of beauty, lust, childhood images and the fear of God.

There are so many striking images in this film as it moves enchantingly forward accompanied by Nino Rota's music. It has the poignancy and thoughtfulness of 8 1/2 and the off-beat atmosphere of Satyricon. A must see for any Fellini fan.

I first saw this as a re-release in the cinema last year, and fell in love with it from that moment. It is a deeply moving and profound film which traces the abandonment of Giulietta by her husband and her search for a new meaning in life. Giulietta Masina (Fellini's off-screen wife) is magnificent, with great subtlety and humanity. Fellini's amazing imagination is at its best and one is instantly struck by the vivid colours and images used as ghosts from the past and present come to haunt Giulietta - as the barrier between reality and dreams is slowly broken.

Format: DVD
Masterpiece, quintessential...mmmm...very beautifully composed brimming with those avant garde surrealist scenes bubbling over which mark Fellini as belonging to his own oeuvre; the realm of the over ripe sensual. However absent is any plot tension; shattering the psyche as a true fragmentation occurs when someone undergoes a nervous breakdown.

Instead the viewer is handed Fellini's version, far different than someone retreating rapidly from social reality and staying there. It looked as if her break away from reality was preferable to the mundane life of being super rich, bored and wholly dependent on one man for emotional succor.

What Fellini does, is begin to explore the impact of childhood memories upon the present and for this he is prescient, probably only Hitchcock's Marnie at the time did likewise, except with much more angst.

This depiction exceeds in sumptuousness and artistic vision. Each scene is composed with the eye of a renaissance oil painter, a film of scenes, as it hits the retina and plays to the Dionysian hilt. Quite why Guiletta is so devastated is somewhat hard to understand, as she appears a frump compared to the sensuality which coasts around her, and perhaps it is a film about aging, except her mother appears more sensual than her daughter. She cannot engage in the sensual life due to the blockages put in place by a religious upbringing. But it appears to have had no effect upon her mother.

Not an engaging film, for me at least, but highly artistic and contains numerous stills and shots which are jaw dropping in their execution, the interior design, costume and light along with composition of nature puts anything else except the Japanese into somber hues- its just the plot meandered into meaningless, which perhaps is the ultimate statement of the Director of the style of life.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Feb 2012
Format: DVD
Incredibly beautiful this film is, Fellini's first use of colour results in some of the best use of it ever committed to celluloid. With striking design and chic outfits to die for. Unbelievable hats. A witty and playful score, full of 60's European eccentricity.

Many scenes are wonderfully conceived and made. Much is sexy - and fun. Fellini himself described "Guiletta of the Spirits" as a 'fairy tale for adults'.

However, all of it is one long (I mean over-long long), narrative-free zone, a mishmash of supposedly Guilletta Masina's (Fellini's wife and long standing lead in many of his films) dreams and fantasies.

She, as the overlooked wife of husband, played by Mario Pisu, who incidentally played Fellini in the previous film, the autobiographical 8 and a half, finds herself bored, becoming frumpy and unloved. Her friends are younger, sexually active and liberated and she, naturally is envious and frustrated.

The actual events of Guilletta's life and her friendship get ever more blurred into fantasy and as the film progresses, this turns into either a self-indulgent slurry of incomprehensible images or dreams of utter beauty and imagination, depending on where your viewpoint stands - and indeed, where the film veers you.

The thoughts and fantasies aren't all pleasant and dreamy; paranoid delusions appearing and telling her (the "Spirits" of the title, perhaps) that her husband is cheating on her and that her comfortable life is no longer quite so. Guilletta's acting in previous films had been outstanding, making them unforgettable and truly great. I'm not saying her acting skills are diminished in this, just that it's swamped by all the over-the-top sets and scenes that focus on the fantasy and not her.
