One of the maestro Federico Fellini's greatest '70s works (between Satyricon and The Clowns and Amarcord) Roma [Rome] erupts volcanically as a state-of-the-world pronouncement on what was not only happening within Rome at the tide of the hippies' organic birth and the post-Boom-set that made up his characters of the 1960s films but also where and how his city would move feverishly forward into one of potential futures. As Fellini himself travels with his crew to document the ring-road circling Rome with all the natural diversions that might inherently divert... a traditional film shoot we move into episodes that chart the wartime difficulties of Roman life across those fleeting times that chronicle love and life within the modern-day Rome-time themselves pitted against the archaeological vestiges of the great city - and the Catholic church rears its dominance and we come into a midpoint that positions itself indeed between the memory-cinema of Satyricon and Amarcord. One of the great and bountiful colour-spectacles of Fellini's cinema almost leapt off toward from the moment of Giulietta of the Spirits Fellini's Roma remains a passionate testament both to the city that finally claimed him as its son after he left small Rimini and to the final stage of cinema that he himself would work till the day he died.

Italian comedy drama directed by Federico Fellini. Returning to Rome, the city of his youth, to film a documentary, Federico Fellini (Peter Gonzales) finds himself stuck in a huge traffic jam. He recalls the city as it was in the 1920s, and as fantasy and reality proceed to merge, he observes an ecclesiastical fashion show, complete with nuns on roller skates, and discovers ancient murals in a Roman villa.
