How does one go about describing such a movie? This is surely among FedericoFellini's best movies, exquisitely filmed and with a haunting soundtrack (by Nino Rota) that might follow you for the rest of your life. It is also a movie so fantastically nostalgic, filled with wondrous, larger-than-life characters, with an almost universal appeal. It's probably one of those movies that's best experienced.

* MoodWhiplash: [[spoiler: The unexpected illness and death of Titta's mother interupts the slapstick.
::This also happens when Titto's father is dragged in for questioning by the Black Shirts and forced to drink castor oil. The mood changes abruptly again when the father is being bathed by his wife after soiling himself and Titto laughs and asks why he stinks.(Presumably not realizing what had happened).]]
