Be sure to catch this for the clips of Donald Sutherland chatting to an audience about Fellini.
12 May 2004 | by (Oz) – See all my reviews

Great if you don't know much about the way Fellini works. Fellini afficionadoes more knowledgeable than myself tell me that this doesn't tell you anything deep, illuminating or insightful, but this gave me a wonderful introduction to the way Fellini works, his fear of losing the image of the movie in his head by putting it into concrete terms. How little he knows about the technical side of filmmaking. What a cartoonist's eye he has for creating character: we see him in a preliminary interview with the man who will play Titta's father in Amarcord, making the man interesting by drawing a cartoon of him.

Donald Sutherland, who played Casanova in Fellini Casanova, is the real star of this doco. There are a couple of clips they play from a sort of public-looking question time where people are asking him about working with Fellini. Sutherland tells us the exact kind of wonderful little stories we want to hear. The illuminating little anecdotes about what its like working with someone. If you ever see advertised that Sutherland is doing a talk somewhere, attend! A very entertaining man off-screen as well!

A nice little doco, though in the end i had to agree with my Fellini friends that i didn't know anything too deep or complex about Fellini by the end of the film (further than what i've said above).
