LA DOLCE VITA | Movie Reviews + Features | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper


Federico Fellini's 1960 film follows Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni), a gossip columnist in contemporary Rome, a faded classical city now a playground of shallow decadents. Fellini abandons his neo-realist style to present Marcello's travails -- a modern man adrift amidst affluence and boredom -- in a lush, black-and-white kaleidoscope of flamboyant images. One of Fellini's most popular films, La Dolce Vita features such memorable scenes as Marcello frolicking with Anita Ekberg in the Trevi fountain and the film's infamous opening sequence, in which a Christ statue flies over the city. Pittsburgh Filmmakers will screen a newly restored 35 mm print. In Italian with subtitles. Starts Fri., Jan. 14. Regent Square
