  • (Directed and written by Federico Fellini, photographed by Gianni De Venanzo; with Marcello Mastroianni) Guido Anselmi, a famous film director, finds himself at an impasse in both his profession--his creative juices appear to have dried up--and his private affairs--his wife seems strident and unloving while his mistress bores him. Whenever he is confronted with a crisis in either of these spheres he lies, procrastinates or escapes into fantasy. (In Italian with English subtitles) (Restricted to classroom use only)
