Fellini The Artist - 6th Nov 2017

Fellini The Artist Edward Murray's Fellini The Artist

You know that one of Fellini's most famous films is La Dolce Vita starring Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg and Anouk Aimee to name just one of the famous actors and two of the famous actresses who starred in the production. I wonder if today these three would insist on being referred to as 'actors' rather than actors and actresses as they were then? It seems reasonable for actresses to wish to be known as actors, I suppose, but I am left pondering how they can then be nominated for and/or accept an award for "Best Actress". That doesn't make sense and smacks of hypocrisy.

However, that is nothing to do with this book. Federico Fellini is probably the best known of all Italian film-makers. Most have heard of him and seen one of his films, such as the above-mentioned or La Strada or Casanova. This book looks at the man behind the films and also focuses on the how and why of his film-making.
