In Federico Fellini’s lauded Italian film, restless reporter Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) drifts through life in Rome. While Marcello contends with the overdose taken by his girlfriend Emma (Yvonne Furneaux), he also pursues heiress Maddalena (Anouk Aimée) and movie start Syliva (Anita Ekberg), embracing a carefree approach to living. Despite his hedonistic attitude, Marcello does have moments of quiet reflection, resulting in an intriguing cinematic character study.
