Upon location scouting, the Trevi Fountain was closed for remodeling. Production knew they had to get this in the film as it's one of the most iconic Federico Fellini film locations in filmmaking. The production companies scored when the city revealed the newly remodeled tourist attraction to the public-just making the end of the shooting schedule. See more »
We all have to grow up... eventually. My sister Claire, however, did not agree. She was a normal kid except somehow never stopped believing in magic and fairy tales and true love, which basically made her a magnet for creeps.

Yeah, ouch. Luckily, we were super popular. Except not really. I was never what you'd call a sweet child, and Claire... Claire had problems.

If you're looking for a typical Hollywood cookie-cutter predictable film, stay at home and watch Bridget Jones because this isn't one of those.
Its stunning photography and enough of a Fellini film's "Huh?", mixed with a story which made me have to suspend belief a couple times but then I remembered it's not a documentary so I was good again. Oh, yeah - it's a movie! I got immersed, involved and actually got a bit emotional at the end.
I probably came away with a slightly different take on what the film was about than you will, and that's my favorite thing about art. Go see it and enjoy the beauty of your own journey with this lovely film.
