la dolce vita

Sunday 14 July, 2024 at 3.30 p.m.

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, La Dolce Vita rocketed Federico Fellini to international mainstream success — ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom. A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome’s rich and glamorous, the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist (a sublimely cool Marcello Mastroianni) during a hectic week spent on the peripheries of the spotlight. This mordant picture was an incisive commentary on the deepening decadence of contemporary Europe, and it provided a prescient glimpse of just how gossip- and fame-obsessed our society would become.

Screening as part of our CIneMasters: Marcello Mastroianni 100 season, along with La Notte (The Night), Le Notti Bianche (White Nights), and Bell’ Antonio (Handsome Antonio)

Supported by the Italian Institute of Culture in Edinburgh and Cinecittà on the occasion of Fare Cinema 2024, and with thanks to Cristaldifilm, Compass Film and Janus Films.
