4.5 out of 10 As fresh as if made today
Philip from Dublin, 25 Jul 2010
One of Fellini's great masterpieces, this is as fresh and important today as the day it was made. Sprawling, gorgeous, licentious and moving, this is an epic of vacuousness - following the slow disintegration of the integrity of a journalist dedicating himself to writing about the lives of the idle rich and almost famous. The film is full of stunning imagery, not least the great ending.

2 out of 10 Requires patience I didn't have
Eimear from Dublin, 02 Aug 2011
I love italian language and so rented this movie, however I had to fight to stay awake during this film, and actually gave up half way through due to the plot not being apparent yet, and very little of interest happening! Not something I usually do, but I physically couldn't watch any more :-(

1 out of 10 Too Long, Boring
Adrian from Kildare, 23 Apr 2013
Way too long, the Anita Ekberg character was just going somewhere when that story ended - never to be seen again..... she was best bit of this film by a million miles. Using her image to sell it when she's only a tiny part of the movie is a bit dishonest to say the least.

What's it about....
Marcello Mastroianni plays a playboy reporter, on the hunt for scandal amongst Rome's high society, in this classic Italian film, directed by Federico Fellini. Both drawn to and repelled by the decadent lifestyle that provides his living, he finds himself torn between his passion for a starlet (Anita Ekberg) and his desire for a Bohemian life like that of his friend (Alain Cuny). The film was considered controversial upon its original release, for its frank portrayal of the...
