Arguably Fellini's greatest film, La Dolce Vita is a searing critique of celebrity-obsessed society as seen through the eyes of a fluff-peddling journalist, Marcello Mastroianni, who chronicles 'the sweet life' of fading aristocrats, second-rate movie stars and aging playboys, Lust, adultery, loneliness and tragedy follow the philandering Marcello as he vainly vies for the affections of a vivacious screen goddess (Anita Ekberg) while fleeing his obsessive, suicidal fiance.
There is no denying that La Dolce Vita is a great film, full of energy and charisma, a perfect bubbling chemistry between Marcello and the many women of his chaotic life. It is scathing in its cynicism, painting the life of high society as a superficial mess. I live in a very different world to Marcello's, so while the window in was intriguing, it wasn't as affecting as others have found. The pace was fast, characters popped in and out all the time. This DVD has *terrible* subtitles. Not in terms of accuracy, because I don't speak Italian, but they are out of sync, missing in sections, all over the place. Can ruin the whole experience.
