Synopsis

Ivo Salvini has recently been released from a mental hospital and is in love with Aldini. As he attempts to win her heart, he wanders a strange, dreamlike landscape in his Emilian village and encounters various oddball characters, including Gonnella, a paranoid old man prone to conspiracy theories.

Our take

How else could Federico Fellini bid farewell to cinema but with a baroque, dreamlike, and nostalgic fable? Here’s a welcome restoration of this Ermanno Cavazzoni adaptation with Roberto Benigni, for which Fellini created an Italian town from scratch—a poetic vision amongst a disenchanting modernity.
