“Sorrentino is so often compared to Fellini that it feels right that he has made the city of La Dolce Vita the focus for this heady, beautiful, entrancing film.” Dave Calhoun, Time Out. When a journalist’s 65th birthday coincides with a shock from the past, he finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
