DVD (Wide Screen / Dolby 5.1 / Mono)



Fellini's first film in color is given a glorious release by Criterion. The widescreen anamorphic print (with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1) has a perfect color balance which will amaze viewers. The Italian language soundtrack is in Dolby Digital 2.0 (mono). There are optional English subtitles. Extras include a BBC documentary entitled "Familiar Spirits" made in 1966 with a running time of approximately 21 minutes. This black-and-white film primarily consists of an interview with the director in English in which he discusses numerous topics surrounding his unique creative process. It is well put together and has many insights. The final disk extra is the theatrical trailer for the film. Though slim on extras, this disk is still excellent given the flawless print of the feature.
