Intervista Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Intervista has been termed a semi-documentary: This is in fact the filmed autobiography of Italian director [[Performer~P89547~Federico Fellini~federicofellini]], framed in the form of an interview conducted by a Japanese film crew. As the interview progresses Fellini's mind wanders to his earliest days (the reenacted events conflict with several of the "official" stories of his life). His fascination with filmmaking is manifested in the "wonderland" atmosphere of the old Cinecitta studios. With the cooperation of Fellini's loyal co-workers, we are permitted to see tantalizingly brief excerpts (some self-mocking) of Fellini's modus operandi. A visit by Fellini and guest-star [[Performer~P46339~Marcello Mastroianni~marcellomastroianni]] to [[Performer~P21423~Anita Ekberg~anitaekberg]]'s home leads to a lavish (and poignant) "reliving" of the 1961 Fellini/Mastroianni/Ekberg effort [[Feature~V27906~La Dolce Vita~ladolcevita]]. The climax of Intervista scene invokes Fellini's previous inward-looking classic [[Feature~V318~8 1/2~812]], with a novel twist calculated to send the director's disciples home with a knowing smile. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
