  1. FISCHER's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Occasion de retrouver les fantasmes felliniens dans un film chaotique et parfois démesuré. On peut prétendre à raison préférer de loin certains chefs-d'oeuvre comme "Huit et demi", à la cuvée (couvée) du maître Federico Fellini de ces dernières années... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Lintang A.'s rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Seems a bit pretentious, but the film is Fellini through and through. No other director or writer could do anything that feels quite like this. A wonderful, surreal absurdity, the film features a diverse cast of bizarrely engaging characters.

  5. Dale Wittig's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Two of the great pleasures of e la Nave va are the incisive performances of Pina Bausch and Barabara Jefford. Both are presented as schemers, though la Principessa Lherimia looks the picture of blind innocence at first and, oppositely, Ildebranda Cuffari proves far kinder than she seems. Fellini's late career exploration of artifice is paired with its perfect subject: Italian Opera and the religious regard it enjoys.

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Over the years, Fellini became a brand name, with films promising to be his memories, his interests, his take on the classics, his version of the world. So the first thing that struck me in this late-career gem was the generosity of its ensemble, harkening back to his early years. The next thing I noticed is how much his late films miss Nino Rota's music. A bittersweet triumph...pair it with The Grand Budapest Hotel.

  9. hostess of horror's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Lack the thematic depth and the brilliant visual imaginativeness of Fellini's masterpieces...but still, he created delightful show with his magical tricks.

  10. Murat Erdem's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Fellini'nin olgunluk dönemi işlerinden.

  11. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    What a mess. It seems by this point, Fellini's films had lost their magic. Instead of energy and magic, instead we have a dead, lifeless plodding thing of a movie. Yes, it's visually beautiful, yes there are some amazing scenes, but it's way too overly stylized, and this is coming from someone who thinks Fellini's greatest film is Juliet of the Spirits. Still bad Fellini is still Fellini.

  12. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    A wonderful tribute to opera and film!

  13. Michele Andreoli's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Ma quanto mi è piaciuto sto finale..ma quanto

  14. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    ¿por qué no han puesto esta película en las listas "el cine en el cine"? podría-debería estar en un señero lugar dentro de ellas! soberbia muestra del cine-fantasía, con apuntes espléndidos sobre la sociedad europea de ayer y entonces ¿y hoy? y poblada de delicias como la de ver a la ciega interpretada por pina bausch o una puesta de sol tan bella que parece artificial y hasta un rinoceronte, bravo maestro!

  16. Jimmy Cline's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    I don't know, I just don't appreciate late-period Fellini as much. While I find the majority of the film interminable, I did actually cry at the end. The ending was especially a little too wink-wink clever for my taste, even for 84'. Fellini is Fellini though.

  17. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    It's very hard to dislike this trifle

  18. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    Later Fellini film is not quite on the level of his earlier masterpieces, but is still an enjoyable flight of fancy for those who enjoy his hyper-stylized absurdism. The story is unfocused and episodic (as with most Fellini films) but gets off to a slow start and remains uneven throughout. But there is still an abundance of oddball characters, bizarre images, and a jubilant atmosphere to keep it entertaining.

  19. Tyler Austin's rating of the film And the Ship Sails On

    really underrated... an under-seen masterpiece from fellini... it's wonderful
