re-rating. Fellini, from "Luci del Varietà" to "Le Notti di Cabiria", is the main inspiration of this film, in its musicality and dramaturgically. An absolute delight of illogicality and its free variations, with actors and camera in a tight agreement - oh the wonder of all those performers! - and a magnificent derision of the Italian-American cinematographic mythology. Splendorous cinematography by Gordon Willis.
