At the Odeon Cinema and the Stensen, for the 100 years since his birth, 5 restored masterpieces of one of the greatest directors ever
“I don’t want to prove anything, I just want to show”. This is the motto Federico Fellini, one of the greatest film directors of all time, lived and worked by his whole life. January 20 marks the 100th anniversary of Fellini’s birth, and such a significant anniversary cannot go unmarked. His was a unique vision, mixing visionary and hyperrealist elements together, even grotesque and tragicomic now and then.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth Odeon and Stensen cinemas pay homage to him by offering a cycle of 5 of his greatest masterpieces, in a restored 4K version and with English subtitles, scheduled one a month in both cinemas, starting from Monday 13 January.
First screened film: The White Sheik, with Alberto Sordi, whose restored version was presented during the last Venice Film Festival. First film directed entirely by Fellini.
I vitelloni, from 1953, also an amazing Alberto Sodi here.
La dolce vita (1960), that was awarded at the Cannes Film Festival and won the Nastro d’argento and David di Donatello prizes. Perhaps the most iconic of all, with the beautiful Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni.
8½, Oscar winner in 1964, always with Marcello Mastroianni, together, among others, Claudia Cardinale, Sandra Milo and Anouk Aimée.
Amarcord, from 1974, another Oscar winner.
