This is a man's movie *spoiler*
The end of the movie really made me laugh, where his wife and mistress were so happy that he actually cared for them. How sweet! Its movies like this that bring out the feminist in me. The images in the film are sometimes fantastic and sometimes very annoying (which perhaps was Fellini's intention, but they were still annoying), but the actual story was just an in-depth piece on a self-centered narcissistic modern man that wallows in his own superficial despair. Was I supposed to be happy that he learned how to love at the end? Because frankly by that point I had stopped caring about him at all. In the summary of this movie it says that Guido is "misguided" but that he was so charming and sweet that we still liked him. Well, I didn't find Guido charming or misguided. I rather hoped that all his women would leave him in the dust and the movie would end with him sobbing silently in a dark corner, all alone.
On a positive note, I did like the music in this film. It almost kept me more entertained than the actual plot.
And just one more thing--I'm rather new to foreign films, but I don't get why they put white subtitles on a white background. If they are going to make the words impossible to read, then just omit them all together. Why don't they outline the letters or something? Just curious.
