(Federico Fellini, 1965). This gaudy pageant of dreams and memories, influenced by Jungian psychology and Fellini’s experiments with LSD, centers around a bourgeois housewife (the director’s wife, Giulietta Masina) and her flashbacks and fantasies, which enable the lady to emerge from such trials as the breakdown of her marriage and the idea of death. Look for the legendary lesbian German actress, Valeska Gert, a true original, in the role of Bishma, the Indian seer.
