But above all, it is generally considered that Fellini is one of the more important film-makers to come out of the neo-realist movement, eventually abandoning those roots and moving into the world of movie artifice. Or rather he returned to his roots. Before his career in movies, Fellini worked as a cartoonist, a writer for Italian photo-novels (called ''fumetti''), which were comic-books with professionally shot photographs with models instead of panels. He also owned a gag shop in Rome which allowed him to befriend many famous comedians such as Alberto Soldi. When Creator/RobertoRossellini cast Soldi against type in his serious film, ''Rome, Open City'', he hired Fellini as a dialogue writer. Fellini worked with Rossellini on many major films and even acted in the controversial short film, ''The Miracle''. Eventually Fellini started directing films himself. His earlier films were more sober and realistic -- ''Nights of Cabiria'' and ''La Strada'' -- both starring his wife even recieved nominations for Oscars for Foreign Films. His career really took off with ''Film/LaDolceVita'' a worldwide box-office hit.

After he switched to color in the mid-60's, Fellini stopped suppressing his imagination and made a bunch of "What on Earth is going on right now?" movies. At the time, most of them were dismissed by critics and several fans, his universally-loved semi-autobiographical masterpiece ''Film/{{Amarcord}}'' being the exception. Many of his fans, however, heartily and readily agree that his color films are important; in recent times, some such as ''Juliet of the Spirits'', ''Satyricon'', his version of ''Casanova'', ''And the Ship Sails On'', and ''Intervista'' are gaining stature as being the most mature works. There are a very high number of movie critics and historians who would argue that his "weird" period is the best of his career.

* AuthorAppeal: Fellini once said: "If if I would make a movie about life itself, it would still be about me in the end."
* BadLiar: To Fellini lies and truth were almost the same.
* BigBeautifulWoman: A trademark of many of his films. Usually they're even so imposing that they become frightening.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Happens occasionally.
* TheCasanova: Fellini directed a film about him.
* CorruptChurch: Whenever priests and nuns appear it's comical and with no respect for their authority.
* CultSoundtrack: Nino Rota's music turned every Fellini film into this.
* DaydreamSurprise: Dreams are an important trademark of Fellini's work.
* EarWorm: Nino Rota's melodies will never leave your head again.
* EveryoneComesBackFantasyPartyEnding: Sometimes.



* GrotesqueGallery

to:

* GrotesqueGalleryGrotesqueGallery: Many people in his movies were cast because of how eccentric or bizarre they looked. Fellini himself was a cartoonist, so that might explain it a bit.
* HongKongDub: Some of his later films are very badly dubbed, mostly because Fellini thought up new dialogues for the actors to say even after every scene was already shot.
* ImagineSpot: To the point that it's difficult to separate dream from reality.
* LargeHam: Some of the acting in his later films borders to this.
* MonsterClown: Fellini had a love-hate relationship with clowns. They recurr often in his work. One of his film, "I Clowns", is a documentary about them.
* MrImagination: Fellini himself.
* {{Neologism}}: The word "paparazzo" was derived from his film Film/LaDolceVita.
* NunsAreSpooky: In his films they are.
* PostModernism: "8 1/2"
* UsefulNotes/{{Rome}}: Fellini adored Rome so much that he dedicated an entire movie to it: Film/{{Roma}}. The city also returns in most of his other movies.
* SceneryPorn: Most of the locations count as this.
* ShoutOut: Shout-outs to classic 1930s movie icons like MaeWest, LaurelAndHardy and TheMarxBrothers are not uncommon.
