Daughter to Antiochus:
Federico Fellinis triumphant homage to Rome brings the city to exuberant outrageous life, reflecting Fellini's own multi-faceted imagination in a brilliant mosaic of Roman images. A trip to the underground reveals a subterranean Roman villa; a fashion show becomes an ecclesiastical fancy dress parade-and an indignant spectator of the film unit at work complains to the director that his film is filled with homosexuals and enormous whores.
Written by FEDERICO FELLINI and BERNARDINO ZAPPONI
Directed by FEDERICO FELLINI (An Italian film with English subtitles)
