'A sexy, surreal masterpiece of modernity' - The Guardian ★★★★★

Federico Fellini’s exquisite tale of celebrity casts an adoring yet critical eye towards 60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, the film follows Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist, pursuing a happiness that’s always just out of reach. Hugely influential, Fellini’s film stretched the boundaries of what big, ambitious cinema was capable of. La Dolce Vita is both a raucous, intoxicating portrait of “the sweet life” of the title, and a razor-sharp critique of that lifestyle’s moral and spiritual emptiness.
