Fellini Retrospective: La dolce vita

Celebration for the 100th anniversary of Federico Fellini’s birth

The third movie presented within the Fellini Retrospective organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with Randwick Ritz Cinema on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great master of Italian cinema is La dolce vita (1960).

The retrospective, organised by the Ritz Cinema, immediately found the enthusiastic participation of the IIC who has engaged the expertise of Christian Pazzaglia to open the series and introduce six of the eight titles listed in the program. The public will be invited to interact with Pazzaglia at the end of the screening through Q&A sessions.

ekbergLa dolce vita (1960)

Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimée, Yvonne Furneaux

Plot: The movie depicts seven days (and nights) in the life of a Marcello Rubini, a Roman journalist writing for gossip magazines torn between making something serious of his life or drifting along on a pleasant if empty stream of casual affairs and profitable, but meaningless, newspaper and magazine work. In the course of the week, he flirts with a visiting movie star, has a couple of encounters with a bored socialite, one of them in a prostitute's bedroom, is shocked when Steiner, a "serious" writer and deep thinker kills himself and his children, and generally ignores his adoring girlfriend. In the end, he seems to have cut himself adrift on a sea of frivolity and self-disgust, with no real idea of how to find his way "home" again.

La Dolce Vita won the Palm d’Or at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Costumes and remains one of the most critically acclaimed films of all time.
