A very interesting "director's notebook"
24 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This will especially appeal to Fellini fanatics or those who are thinking of taking film on seriously as a career. The latter, while going to hold a big place in my heart, isn't the career I'm pursuing(singing is my main passion) but I am a great admirer of Fellini. And I was intrigued after reading about Fellini: A Director's Notebook on Fellini's filmography. After seeing it, it was very interesting. The photography is not as fluid as in Fellini's movies, but it's still focused in how it's used. The scenery and such is beautiful, and musically it is cheerful and nostalgic. What was also fascinating about Fellini: A Director's Notebook is its blend of reality and fiction, blend of brilliant and very random, and how it keeps largely true to Fellini's nostalgic and thematically strong if not always subtle(satire, religion and women for examples) directing style. Many times it also comes across as very personal, as a lot of Fellini films are. The discussions are just fascinating, the best being (obviously) Fellini's with his comments of his movies and how he makes them as well as his reflective retrospect, Marcello Mastroianni, who comes across as idealistic and somewhat honest about his reputation as a womaniser and Genius, whose interview is where it is more reality than fiction. Giulietta Masina is lovely to see, though not as insightful or as understandable as the above. Overall, very well done and interesting if not quite a favourite, if anything I would have liked it to have been a little longer though that's probably just me. 8/10 Bethany Cox
