Cinema Passport Notes Nº 2 "La Dolce Vita"
"There are thoughts that travel with us over time, ideas that speak to us through their symbols. From the minds and pens of clever philosophers and writers, gifted artists or artisans, striking Mediterranean wisdom remains enchanting today."
LA DOLCE VITA (Federico Fellini, 1920–1993)
Glamorous socialite parties, the flash of the paparazzi’s cameras, and the breathtaking arrival of the famous actress Sylvia (Anita Ekberg). Sophisticated and deliciously decadent Rome is a playground for dashing gossip columnist Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni). As if in a dream, he wanders through the film, frolics with sensuous Sylvia in the Fontana de Trevi. Yet Marcello yearns to write something serious and find life’s meaning. His search is as relevant today as it ever was. Life is as sweet as we make it.
