  • 1965 ----- color ----- 136 min ----- dvd///
  • (Directed by Federico Fellini; with Guilietta Masina, Mario Pisu, Sandra Milo, Valentina Cortese, Lou Gilbert) Fellini's first color feature is a fairy tale based on psychoanalysis. Giulietta is trapped in a sterile marriage which, while externally ideal, lacks fidelity and reciprocated love. Inwardly she yearns to become a totally loving, fully sensual woman. But her Catholic upbringing, represented by terrifying spectres, conspires to repress and destroy this drive. [Letterboxed] (In Italian with English subtitles) (Restricted to classroom use only)
