Cycle
Centennial Anniversary of Fellini

As an institution with a consistent focus on the history of cinema, a comprehensive Federico Fellini retrospective is the least we can do to mark his centennial. He was a great inventor of cinematic forms and a complex artist – paradoxical, tormented, light-hearted, provocative, introspective, brutal, idealistic and jaded all at once. He recreated the world through his lens, while remaining a sharp observer of his contemporaries and the many sensitivities of his time.

Synopsis

An almost-normal heroine’s emotional roller coaster, as she’s torn between the comforts of bourgeois life and a desire to break free of everything holding her back. One of Fellini’s most dreamlike films.

Director

Federico Fellini was one of the greatest Italian writers and directors of the 20th century, and one of the most illustrious filmmakers in the history of cinema. He won the Palme d'or at Cannes in 1960 for La dolce vita, and took home the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film four times (La strada, Nights of Cabiria, 8 ½ and Amarcord), a record he shares with his compatriot Vittorio De Sica. Initially associated with neo-realism, Fellini’s work evolved over the course of the 1960s toward a unique approach related to European modernism, a movement associated with Ingmar Bergman, Michelangelo Antonioni, Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard and Andrei Tarkovsky. His films grew increasingly to embrace a proliferation of themes, deliberate artifice and the complete erasure of boundaries between dream, imagination, hallucination and reality.

On March 29, 1993, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded him a lifetime achievement Oscar, “in recognition of his place as one of the screen’s master storytellers.” (Wikipédia)

Quand un artiste se sert de la couleur au cinéma, quelle réussite ! Bravo ! "Juliette des esprits" est l’œuvre d’un peintre surréaliste (…). C’est une mosaïque où l’auteur livre son âme par le truchement de personnages artificiels évoluant dans des décors irréels.

Federico Fellini aurait eu 100 ans en 2020. Il a fait partie de ces cinéastes qui ont triomphé de leur vivant, dont la reconnaissance de leur apport au cinéma a été affirmée sans ambages, ce qui en retour a sans doute influencé les films qu’ils ont pu encore faire. Non pas qu’il ait gagné des prix à tout coup...

Le réalisme est un mauvais mot. Dans un sens, tout est réaliste. Je vois mal la frontière de l'imaginaire et du réel. Je vois beaucoup de réalité dans l'imaginaire. Je ne me sens pas chargé de mettre de l'ordre dans tout ça, sur un plan rationnel.
