    Later remade in Hollywood as Sweet Charity, Fellini's Nights of Cabiria is an often humorous, poignant, unflinching and vivid portrait of one woman's picaresque existence and her perseverance through adversity. Starring Fellini's wife, Giulietta Masina, as the irrepressible protagonist who previously appeared in a brief scene in The White Sheik, Nights of Cabiria marked Fellini's last foray into gritty neo-realism before venturing into the surreal satire and dream logic of La Dolce Vita and Eight And A Half.

    Four directors tell tales of Eros fit for a 1970s Decameron. Working-class lovers Renzo and Luciana marry but must hide it from her employer; plus they need a room of their own. A billboard of Anita Ekberg provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle. The wife of a count whose escapades with call- girls make the front page decides to work to prove her independence but what is she qualified to do? A buxom carnival-booth manager who owes back taxes offers herself for one night in a lottery: a nerdy sacristan and a jealous cowboy make for a lovers' triangle. In each women take charge but not always happily.

    Ivan Cavalli (Leopoldo Trieste) brings his new wife Wanda (Brunella Bovo) to Rome on the least romantic honeymoon in history - a rigid schedule of family meetings and audiences with the Pope. But Wanda dreaming of the dashing hero of a photo-strip cartoon drifts off in search of the White Sheik (Alberto Sordi) thus setting off a slapstick comedy worthy of Chaplin. The themes and style that would make Federico Fellini world famous can be found in this charming comedy.

    Italian cinematic maestro Federico Fellini (La Dolce Vita 8 1/2) shows that even in his mid-sixties he had lost none of his power to shock entertain and amaze with And The Ship Sails On his haunting and majestic `comedy of arias'. Made in 1983 the film is set on the eve of the first world war but this matters little to the peacock parade of opera celebrities who cast off on a luxury liner to scatter the ashes of the world's greatest diva near her native adriatic island.

    Fellini's take on youth which directly influenced films like Mean Streets, American Graffiti, Diner and other coming of age movies. Leonard Maltin rates it as Fellini's absolute masterpiece, yet it has been rarely revived perhaps overshadowed by his epoch-making, harbinger of a generation lifestyle, his DOLCE VITA! When discovering Fellini's I VITELLONI ('young bucks'), fans will instead recognise the director's influence on many later films adopting its bunch-of-guys-hanging-out format. Close to their 30s, the film's, mostly unemployed, long-time pals are too old to be kids but still uncertain about settling down in their Italian seaside town I VITELLONI is also terribly funny!.. and even if rooted in Italian neo-realism, Fellini is already announcing his fantastical, carnivalesque cinema of weirdness..

    Federico Fellini followed up his iconic breakthrough La strada with this brilliant drama - an unsparing look at the dog-eat-dog values of post war Italian society that nonetheless manages to navigate expertly between the lightly comic and the emotionally stark to become one of his richest most moving works. Il bidone [The Swindle] follows three small-time conmen - the ageing Augusto (Broderick Crawford) Picasso (Richard Basehart) and Roberto (Franco Fabrizi) - as they prey upon the poor and gullible for modest gains. However once Augusto is unexpectedly reunited with his daughter now struggling with her studies the moral and emotional demands of his lifestyle begin to take their toll sooner than he had anticipated. With its masterful set pieces and host of superb performances (including the director's wife and muse Giuletta Masina) this forms the centrepiece of what has been termed Fellini's Trilogy of Loneliness (with bookending films La strada and Le notti di Cabiria) and may be the darkest examination of human nature he ever attempted. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this long-undervalued classic in a new high-definition restoration. Special Features: Optional English subtitles Original theatrical trailer 36-Page Booklet featuring the words of Federico Fellini rare imagery and more! More to be announced!

    Fellini's first colour film is an homage to his real-life wife, Giulietta Masina who gives a superb yet nuanced performance in this stunning cinema classic. Giulietta plays her namesake, a bored, timid and unfulfilled wife who, suspecting her husband's infidelity, enters a surreal fantasy journey of self-discovery filled with dreams and fantasies. Much of her fantasies involve her sexually liberated neighbour Suzy, played by Sandra Milo (Fellini's lover in real life!! - those Italians can be so ˜adult' about things!) Fellini becomes Felliniesque - and for the 1st time, in colour! emphasised as always though by a delightful whimsical Nino Rota score.
