Two protagonists, who differ in almost everything: a patient, released from a mental institution and looking for his beloved (brilliant Roberto Benigni) and a former prefect (Paolo Villaggio). The cross-section of life’s losers that they meet on their way, under even stranger circumstances, makes up a maze of funny and incredible adventures. For the viewer, it’s also a journey into the deep corners of the human mind. In his latest film Fellini returns to the motives from “La strada”, characters wander around the region of his childhood (Emilia-Romagna), and reality mixes smoothly with unreality in difficult to determine proportions.

Federico Fellini (1920-1993), Il Maestro, one of the greatest Italian scriptwriters and directors. Initially he was the assistant and co-writer of Roberto Rosselini. He made a significant contribution to the new Italian film school but, despite the recognition he already enjoyed, he chose a separate path. Each of his films was significant and loud. Some - like the Oscar-winning “La strada” – are considered the most influential works of world cinema. From his debut “The Lights of Variety” (1950) to his last painting “The voice of the Moon” (1990), he showed an oneiric world, suspended between the open and the dream, ambiguous, allegorical and full of space.
