La dolce vita

Cineriz (Firm), Riama Film, Cinecittà, s.p.a, Pathé Consortium Cinéma

DVD - 2014

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, the film rocketed Federico Fellini to international mainstream success, ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom. A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome's rich and glamorous; the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist during a hectic week spent on the peripheries of the spotlight.
