71/100 (İlk izlediğimde puanım 95 civarıydı ama ikinci izlemem dayanılmaz bir hal aldı. Vasat izleyiciler gibi sıkıcı film demiyorum. Ancak film kendini çok tekrar ediyor. Belki de filme 50 tane karakter dahil oluyor ama hepsi aynı mentaliteye sahip. Bize bunun 3 saat izletilmesini anlamam imkansız. İlk izleyişte neden sevdiğim bile hatırlayamadım. Çünkü üç saat aynı şeyi izliyoruz. Devamı yorumumda.)
It starts as a joyous travelogue and how fun it is to party in Rome, but ends up as a tragedy with a devastating murder that change the entire film as a man discover that his life is without hope and one big failure after another and his chances of true happiness is never discovered as he plummets into his own selfishness.
"La Dolce Vita (1960) "Don't be like me. Salvation doesn't lie within four walls. I'm too serious to be a dilettante and too much a dabbler to be a professional. Even the most miserable life is better than a sheltered existence in an organised society where everything is calculated and perfected."
There's more going on in this genuinely unique film than even the most jaded filmgoer can prepare themselves for. They may even be as offended as they are delighted. It's follow up 8 1/2 feels like a dull remake directed by Woody Allen, by comparison. You will be left stranded on a beach and you will like it.
A bittersweet portrait of a man and his everlasting struggle with feelings of emptiness and discontent in the materialistic world of upper-class post-war Italy. Feels as though this might require a couple of re-watches to really reveal its true genius, to me at least. Truly a beautiful piece of classic cinema though,
