Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, La dolce vita rocketed FEDERICO FELLINI (8½) to international mainstream success—ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom.

A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome’s rich and glamorous, the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist—played by a sublimely cool MARCELLO MASTROIANNI (8½)—during a hectic week spent on the peripheries of the spotlight. This mordant picture was an incisive commentary on the deepening decadence of the European 1960s, and it provided a prescient glimpse of just how gossip- and fame-obsessed our society would become.

Special Features:

  • New 4K digital restoration by the Film Foundation, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New visual essay by : : kogonada
  • New interview with filmmaker Lina Wertmüller, who worked as assistant director on the film

  • New interview with Italian film journalist Antonello Sarno about the outlandish fashions seen in the film
  • Audio interview with actor Marcello Mastroianni from the early 1960s, conducted by film historian Gideon Bachmann
