Writer-director Federico Fellini's virtually plotless ode to the city of Rome is a gaudy collection of images and sounds celebrating the famed Italian capital. Partly autobiographical, the film reconstructs Fellini's arrival in Rome during the Mussolini years, a trip to a brothel and a circus-like visit to a music hall. More realistic scenes of a movie company making a film about the city are mixed with absurd images of Rome after dark.
