Eight and a Half
Review: About a film director who retreats into his memories and fantasies.
Director: Federico Fellini
Actors: Marcello Mastroiabnni, Anouk Aimee and Claudia Cardinale
Year: 1963
Genre: Art-House, Comedy, Drama and International
Conclusion: 4/5
An interesting film. One that involves a lot of concentration in order to fully understand. I found it hard to distinguish the past and present. At the Academy Awards in 1964 this won 2 Oscars and they were for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White and also Best Foreign Language Film (Italy). One American film critic wrote about this film “Almost no one knew for sure what they had seen after one viewing”. A very stylish and thought provoking film from one of cinema’s finest directors.
