A talented directors new project is unravelling around him, along with his life. His search for inspiration leads him down many a strange and twisted paths. Known as one of the greatest films about film ever made, it turns one mans artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema.

Our take

Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, there is strange undeniable magic to Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical, self-referential film about film. It is an iconic, modernist work of absolute genius that manically flits between the fantastic and the realistic.
