A minor film in the career of Fellini, yet a priceless oeuvre. This strongly fellinesque mockumentary is what remains today of "Il Viaggio di G. Mastorna" and many other ideas never developed into movies.
Fellini mockumentary that is a semi-interesting, but rather rambling piece about the director's unfinished film The Voyage of G. Mastorna, and his then upcoming work, the ancient Roman picture Satyricon. The opening images of a huge abandoned set with wind blowing through it to Nino Rota's music are hauting, the rest of the picture just seems like a collection of unfocused ideas/promotional material. Underwhelming.
