This film is worth watching just to see these two great actors together. This is Mastroianni and Masina aging gracefully and having fun with this movie. There is a lot of Fellini craziness that was the norm for his later films. There is even a scene involving edible panties, delicious.
I just flat out adored this movie! The romance and the satire were just brilliant. The performances and the chemistry from Marcello Mastroianni and Giuletta Masina was incredible! Fellini's direction, brilliant as always! Everything about it was just phenomenal!
Though many consider his latter efforts to be his weakest work, this film is as inventive, offbeat, heartfelt, and charming as you'd expect from Fellini. Re-teaming with Marcello Mastroianni and Giulietta Masina, who he'd directed in so many iconic roles, adds an extra dimension of poignancy to their superb performances. A wonderful film that Fellini fans must not overlook.
