EXPLORING WORLD CINEMA - FILM #18

For the first 15 or so minutes into Fellini's , you don't really understand what is going on. However, as you get to know Fellini's style and learn more about the plot and the character of Guido, you quickly realise the genius that you're witnessing. As well as the marvellous acting, the filmmaking is also incredible, particularly the cinematography and the way the lighting works in black-and-white. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of surrealism which is why my rating isn't higher, however I can still appreciate the film for what it is.
