Fellini followed his phantasmagoric masterpiece 8 ½ in maybe the only way he possibly could have—by making his first color feature. Masina plays Juliet, the middle-aging wife of an affluent businessman (Mario Pisu), whom she suspects is cheating on her. Her inane circle of family, friends, and neighbors is no help, and soon dreams, visions, and maybe even ghosts are infringing on her troubled reality. Juliet might be Fellini’s most visually dazzling film—the crazy hats alone are almost worth the price of admission—but nothing distracts from Masina and her wounded eyes.
1965 Dir. Federico Fellini. 1.85:1 Color DCP 145 min. In Italian with English subtitles.
