  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    This book is quite an achievement; the text manages to capture much of the film’s ambiance which really is too elusive to put into words. Fellini’s interpretation of the world ─ his world ─ was primarily visual, sensual and emotional. Yet so much of the big picture has been skillfully distilled into just 8 short chapters. After reading the book a number of times, I watched the film again (for the umpteenth time) and ─ relieved from the necessity of having my eyes permanently glued to the subtitles ─ delighted in it more than ever.
    Thank you Giovanni Galavotti. Thank you Daniel for Easy Readers!

    This story behind this book is a bit confusing, it took me a while to understand that it was the memories of one of the characters and the story really has no plot. However, I learned a lot of new vocabulary and I was excited to be able to then watch the film and hear my new vocabulary words in context; and the book did a great job of describing the characters so I was able to pick them out in the film before they were actually introduced.

      It’s Fellini, Lisa. Confusing was his middle name. Wait until you get to ‘La dolce vita’…
      The film tells his memories from childhood, in Rimini where my wife is from.
      Thanks for the review, by the way!

    This book is a synopsis of a fairly bizarre film made in 1973 based on Fellini’s childhood memories of the town where he grew up. It seems a bit disjointed, each chapter being a summary of a different memory, but the main characters pop up throughout. If you are passionate about Italian culture, particularly film, it’s worth reading the e-book before watching the film. Bit weird – but very Italian!

    Although I have almost all of the e-readers stored in library on my ipad, this is one of my favorites. It made more clear what to me was a complicated film, and made the film understandable in Italian!
    I go back to the readers again & again and continue to have “ah ha!” moments.
    It’s a particular thrill (piano, piano, piano…) when I discover a new level of understanding as I listen without text!
