5.0 out of 5 stars A cinematic masterpiece, 22 July 2009
By 
This review is from: Roma [DVD] (DVD)
Legendary Italian auteur Federico Fellini pays homage to the Eternal City in this supposedly semi-autobiographical surrealistic study that contrasts the contemporary city with that of Fellini's war-time youth winning both BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations and an out-of-competition screening at Cannes in the process.

Peter Gonzales Falcon plays the young filmmaker making his move from the Rimini of his childhood to the country's capital but this storyline is quickly sidelined as Fellini himself returns to the city to make a film that includes guest appearances from the likes of Gore Vidal and Anna Magnani in her final performance.

The incomparable director creates a truly unique montage of imagery that manages to invoke every emotion as it spirals into the absurd for a unique look at the seedy nooks and crannies of the oft-filmed but rarely captured city than can of done little to please the tourist board but is a true work of cinematic art.

On to Rome!
