Reviews

Winner of four Academy Awards, Federico Fellini has had an immense impact on contemporary film. A visionary, a dreamer, a passionate storyteller and one of the most revered directors in the history of cinema, Federico Fellini managed to create the most original and unique films celebrating the ceaseless carnival of life. With his vivid visual style, iconic, surreal imagery, sly humour and magical sense for the bizarre, Fellini's groundbreaking work has influenced and inspired such celebrated directors as Woody Allen, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch. Included in this collection is the enchanting comedy The White Sheik (1952) (Federico Fellini's debut as a solo director and his first collaboration with composer Nino Rota), his endearing, compelling and unsentimental neo-realism master piece Nights Of Cabiria (1957) and La Strada (1954), the classic drama that introduced him to the world and established him as an important, creative force.

If you're reading this, then it stands to fairly good reason that you are already aware of Fellini, and ergo his weight as one of the greatest directors of all time. These three films are part of his earlier works; two of his earliest (and most famous) neo-realist efforts, La Strada and Nights of Cabiria, as well as his very first film, the whimsical comedy-of-celebrity, The White Sheik.

So, in order of release...

The White Sheik (1952);

It might seem slight, and it's not as eulogised about as Fellini's later works, but this is still a worthy entry into his mighty canon. It tells a fairly simple story of a recently married couple, the worrisome, obsessive Ivan Cavalli (Leopoldo Trieste, a delight), and the more naive and impressionable Wanda Cavelli (Brunella Bovo, also a delight), on their honeymoon. Wanda, receiving an invite from the eponymous "White Sheik" (a film-star she idolises) goes in pursuit of him and ends up on a film set with him. Ivan, on the disappearance of his wife, has something of a nervous breakdown as he tries to conceal this whole affair from his overbearing family.

This is the basic structure to the film; we cut between infatuated Wanda and mindlessly panicked Ivan, before we are treated to a fully deserved happy ending. Fellini, at the same time, has great fun parodying the nature and chaos of a film set (amusing when you consider how inexperienced he must have been at the time), and fits in a nice little sleight of hand on the idea that, behind the glitz and the glamour, celebrities are no different from you and me; and in fact might be worse off than us after all.

This is an excellent Optimum World/Studio Canal box set of three early films by possibly the most famous director name in world cinema, Federico Fellini. The transfers of all three are pristine with very good contrast in the b/w images and extremely clear soundtracks. The films come with a variety of extras including a 30 minute talk by Phil Kemp which ranges over all three films in revealing detail. Moreover, the set is absurdly cheap. I picked it up for ₤9, that's ₤3 per film! Even if you already have La Strada (1954) in your collection (as I did) this is still well worth buying. La Strada is an acknowledged classic and needs no introduction from me. It is one of Fellini's greatest achievements fit to set beside the later La dolce vita (1959) and 8½ (1963) and is mandatory viewing for all lovers of cinema. Nights of Cabiria (1957) is lesser known, but equally as good. Like La Strada, 8½ and Amarcord (1973) it won the Oscar for best foreign film and is an extraordinarily accomplished work. The rarity here is The White Sheik (1952), Fellini's first solo effort. It is a sophisticated comedy and much more than just the curiosity that many take it for. Woody Allen for one liked it enough to remake it in 2012 as To Rome with Love. He also made his own variation on La Strada in Sweet and Lowdown (1999). Before I get to the films themselves I want to start off with a few remarks about Fellini. Younger readers especially might wonder what the fuss about this director is all about.

The first thing to take on board is that Fellini was self taught. He never went to film school and never studied film. Everything he knew he learned hands on from the people that surrounded him on a daily basis.

Simply enchanting and with that unique pathos and humour which is the trademark of Fellini. I particularly enjoyed The White Sheik which was a complete nonsense handled with a masterly light touch. La Strada is one of the all time greats and one of Anthony Quinn's great roles. Nights of Calabria is enjoyable but not in of the same calibre.
