A magical mixture of recollection, parody, memoir, satire, self-examination and joyous fantasy with fellini himself as the master of ceremonies, the film is an uproarious celebration of the studio community.
This mock-documentary provides a multi-layered look at Fellini by Fellini in which he's interviewed by Japanese journalists while filming an adaptation of Kafka's "Amerika" on the legendary stages of Rome's Cinecitta. A personal look at moviemaking from a very personal filmmaker.
