Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forged from the many conversations Charlotte Chandler conducted with director Federico Fellini over the course of fourteen years, and featuring a forward by Billy Wilder, I, Fellini is a portrait of one of Italy's greatest filmmakers in his own words. In the book, Fellini recounts the stories behind his classic films La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, La Strada, and others, describing the inspirations from which they arose and the struggles to get them filmed. He also speaks at length on actors Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren, and Anna Magnani, and on directors Roberto Rossellini, Ingmar Bergman, and Michelangelo Antonioni.

Review:

"Fellini's storytelling races with the kind of high spirits familiar from his films. When Fellini talks about movies, he fascinates us as he himself remained fascinated by cinema's mysterious, mechanically produced magic. His life, narrated with excitable, volatile charm, was determined by motion pictures...A fluent, engaging presentation." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Brava, Charlotte Chandler!" Michelangelo Antonioni

Review:

"Chandler skillfully interweaves conversations with the director from 1980 through 1993, trying to create a 'verbal memoir of the images in his mind.' The result is a charming portrait, but Fellini was so complex and his work so multifaceted that he himself was unable to provide the last word on his life and art....Chandler's book presents the man as simply and honestly as possible in his own words. An important and illuminating addition." Library Journal

Synopsis:

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

Foreword by Billy Wilder

This book — the product of interviews conducted over a fourteen-year period bewteen Italian filmmaker Frederico Fellini (1920-1993) and Charlotte Chandler — offers a revelatory and intimate look at the four-time Academy Award-winning director of such classics as 8 1/2, La Strada, La Dolce Vita, Satyricon, Amarcord, and Juliet of the Spirits. Here is Fellini in all his lusty candor and simple humanity on the subjects he knew and loved best: film, women, circuses, dreams, death, and spaghetti.

Synopsis:

This lusty, high-spirited book was forged from conversations, conducted over the course of fourteen years, between Federico Fellini--the great master director-- and author Charolette Chandler.
