"One of the last true poets of this century, Federico Fellini, author and director of masterpieces such as La Dolce Vita, Eight and a Half and Amarcord, recreates the atmosphere of an alternately middle-class, Fascist, working-class, aristocratic, baroque, cinematographic and contemporary Italy, and of Rome itself, in an extraordinary way. An entire universe is reflected in the eyes and faces of a whole range of true-life characters and personalities, with so many nationalities represented that it could almost form an international heritage of the human species." "Prince of clowns, Fellini has led different generations of viewers by the hand through an ironic, sentimental journey, amongst half remembered day-dream figures, sublime forgeries or dream-like realities, simultaneously creating evocative images that only a magician wielding a movie camera, a liberated vagabond of invention, in short, a bold dreamer of life such as he could unfold. And he did it by means of the disarming power of film, which continues to shine out from his masterpieces."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
