Aero Theatre had a huge SNAFU with the Fellini documentary that was to have preceded "La Dolce Vita" and they were unable to screen the film. Therefore, having driven a long way to see both films, I redeemed my two tickets for vouchers to be used in the future for any film at the Aero. Very, very frustrating.

This stunning restoration of Fellini's film brings out every nuance of the black and white cinematography. And now you're able to see Fellini's humor in the film -- it's not what Pauline Kael described as a "Come Dressed as the Sick Soul of Europe" film; it's a satire on different aspects of Roman society in the early 60s. And Marcello Mastroianni's performance just gets better over time.

Fellini's masterpiece is timeless and cautionary. A tale of a man without a compass, spinning through decadencies while documenting the "sweet life" of Rome for which the film is named.
