In Federico Fellini’s first color feature, the director goes “deliriously and brilliantly bananas with the color” (Stephen Holden, New York Times) to depict the hallucinatory journey of a betrayed housewife in 1960s Italy. Played by Italian screen diva Giulietta Masina, Juliet is one of the many strong female characters (le grandi donne) who graced Italian postwar, post-Fascist cinema with passion, determination, and vivacity. (1965, 35mm, dir. Federico Fellini, 137 min.)
