Our take

The one and the only Marcello Mastroianni reunited with the irrepressible master of Italian cinema Federico Fellini seventeen years after 8 1/2 for a story about—what else?—the arthouse dreamboat being beset by woman of all kinds, as an aging playboy soul-searches in a newly feminist Italy.
