Juliet of the Spirits

( 1 )

Overview

Giulietta Masina stars in director Federico Fellini's Juliet of the Spirits. Presented in 1.66:1 non-anamorphic widescreen, this transfer appears to be a solid effort from Image Entertainment. While the picture sometimes displays a bit of softness and grain, overall this is a fairly clean print that should please fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono in Italian and is, not surprisingly, flat and very uninspired. However, since Juliet of the Spirits is not an effects-heavy action ...

DVD Brand New 6 A delightful, visually inventive fantasy, Federico Fellini's JULIET OF THE SPIRITS is about a bored Italian housewife (Giulietta Masina, Fellini's real-life ... wife) who finds relief from the mundane--and her philandering husband (Mario Pisu)--through sensual escapades in the spirit realm. This fantastic world just happens to be in Juliet's subconscious and is populated with people both from her past and her imagination. As Juliet spends more time in touch with her desires, she slowly gains more independence. Read more Show Less

Overview

Giulietta Masina stars in director Federico Fellini's Juliet of the Spirits. Presented in 1.66:1 non-anamorphic widescreen, this transfer appears to be a solid effort from Image Entertainment. While the picture sometimes displays a bit of softness and grain, overall this is a fairly clean print that should please fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono in Italian and is, not surprisingly, flat and very uninspired. However, since Juliet of the Spirits is not an effects-heavy action film, this mono soundtrack supports the film well without any hiss or distortion marring the mix. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. The extra features on Juliet of the Spirits are floating just at the bare minimum with two filmographies (one for Masina and a second for Fellini) and a theatrical trailer for the film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
The first Fellini film in color, Juliet of the Spirits is one of the director's lesser-known works and one with enigmatic meanings. Intending to reveal the fantasies and inner world of Juliet (played by Fellini's wife, Giulietta Masina), the fantastic events still seem to be streaming from Fellini himself. Memorable moments -- like the seaside parade and a bed with a slide into a pool -- show the director indulging in his gift for painting bizarre images. However, the story suffers compared to the vivid appeal of the visual spectacle. Masina's talents are almost mocked as she seems uncomfortably placed in the realm of her husband's fantasies while playing a wronged wife. The parallel relationship of the fictional Juliet and Giorgio with Masina and Fellini is further complicated by the presence of the flamboyant Suzy (Sandra Milo), who appeared in 8 1/2 as the mistress. Apparently, the husband and wife fought on the set, and it is debatable as to what the ending scene means, where Juliet walks off into the distance. For Fellini, she is embracing her freedom; for Masina, she was descending into loneliness. Not the best picture from either, Fellini's La Strada and Nights of Cabiria make far better use of Masina's sweet and charming comic talents.

    I Also Recommend:

    This mid-period Fellini classic belongs in everyone's film collection.

    Juliet (Guilietta Masina) feels incompetent, and she questions her handsome husband's fidelity. Haunted by visions from her repressed childhood, she sets out on a journey of the mind to find the answers that will bring her world into focus. This film, one of Fellini's first in color, is gorgeous, a feast of images. Funny at times, disturbing at others, it is a tour de force in acting for Felllini's wife Guillietta Masina. Full of bizarre settings, incredible compositions, beautiful and grotesque characters, it is a mind-blowing parade of classic Fellini scenes set to the music of the incomparable Nino Rota. Does it make sense? Not much. Do we care? Not at all.
