The White Sheik

Ivan Cavalli brings his new wife Wanda to Rome on the least romantic honeymoon in history, a rigid schedule of family meetings and audiences with the Pope. But Wanda, dreaming of the dashing hero of a photo-strip cartoon, drifts off in search of the White Sheik.

Our take

In his solo directorial debut, Federico Fellini already set a high standard with the deft, often delirious The White Sheik—a romantic comedy that flows between real life, dreams, worries, desires & fantasies. Co-written with Michelangelo Antonioni (!) and starring Fellini regular Giulietta Masina.
