Fellini's Roma

( 2 )

Overview

Chronicling the fall of the Roman Empire (from Mussolini's Fascist '30s to the student counterculture movements of the decadent '60s and '70s) as imagined by the great Italian film director, Fellini's Roma is a kaleidoscopic, hallucinatory, visually startling and meandering film that is considered by many to be one of the maestro's more memorable films from his '70s output. MGM's disc is sumptuous. Picture quality is stable and vibrant throughout, displaying a sharpness and clarity previously not seen on their ...

Overview

Chronicling the fall of the Roman Empire (from Mussolini's Fascist '30s to the student counterculture movements of the decadent '60s and '70s) as imagined by the great Italian film director, Fellini's Roma is a kaleidoscopic, hallucinatory, visually startling and meandering film that is considered by many to be one of the maestro's more memorable films from his '70s output. MGM's disc is sumptuous. Picture quality is stable and vibrant throughout, displaying a sharpness and clarity previously not seen on their VHS video release. The disc is also subtitled into English, French, and Spanish, though unlike MGM's DVD release of Fellini Satyricon, there is no English-dubbed option. The previously mentioned video release was offered in only an English-language dubbed version. The film's Italian Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono soundtrack is serviceable, though it does lack definition. This is a very mild concern, considering the film's age. The dated yet stylish original theatrical is also included.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Fellini's Roma is precisely the kind of cinematic valentine to the Eternal City that only Federico Fellini could create. Fellini's personal journey through the city of his 1930s youth and the freak show, traffic-clogged 1970s present, Roma fondly lingers over the Felliniesque carnival of characters populating family dinners, theater audiences, brothels, and street parties. Fellini himself appears on film orchestrating the contemporary crew. Accurately summed up on camera by Gore Vidal as "the city of illusions," Fellini turns Rome's Catholic ritualism into an opulent ecclesiastical fashion show, while the subway construction sequence and the final, nocturnal tour of the ruins via motorcycle find surreal beauty in the potentially destructive juxtaposition of ancient and modern Rome. Reportedly disdained by Romans, Roma was nevertheless greeted by critics as a welcome return to the nostalgia and astute commentary of such early masterworks as I Vitelloniand La Dolce Vita. Fellini would merge nostalgia and surrealist fantasy even more fruitfully in Amarcord. Anna Magnani's cameo as herself, urging Fellini to go home and go to sleep, was her final screen appearance. Cameos by Marcello Mastroianni and Alberto Sordi were cut from the English language version.

    An amusing bag of odds and ends.

    Fellini's film Roma should not be watched from the viewpoint of seeing another 8 1/2 or La Strata. Roma is similar to Satyricon; a collection of scenes, metaphors and sick absurdity, all conglomerated in a nonfigurative opus. Some great sections to Roma: an underground passageway displayed with ancient murals; a bordello that features a young Fellini himself; a meeting with Gore Vidal on a veranda; & an outrageous modeling of the Roman Catholic Church, catwalk & all.
