La Dolce Vita

La Dolce Vita (Italian for “the sweet life” or “the good life”) is a 1960 film by the critically acclaimed director Federico Fellini. The film is a story of a passive journalist’s week in Rome, and his search for both happiness and love that will never come. Cited as the film that signals the split between Fellini’s earlier neo-realist films and his later art films, it is considered one of the great achievements in world cinema.

One of the most controversial and acclaimed of Federico Fellini’s many classics, La Dolce Vita stars Marcello Mastroianni as a third-rate reporter who lives a playboy’s life as he pursues a shabby career of scandal mongering. His increasingly amoral interest in the “sweet life” of high society takes him to hedonistic parties and orgies throughout modern day Rome, as days and nights blur into one another.
