- Ciao.

- Good afternoon.

- What did you bring me?

- Nothing, yet. What do you want?

How about you?

You think there'll be a war?

- Wanna see the little granny?

- Sure. That's why I came.

Follow me.

She's littler than us kids.

Little granny!

Look who's here!

- Bless you.

- Thank you, and same to you.

Bet your granny's not that little.

Bet your granny's not that little.

- What's this?

- This is my room.

I haven't tidied up yet.

- It's nice and sunny.

- Will you put down those scissors!

Good afternoon.

Landi's the name. Marco Landi.

- Remember me?

- I think so.

I made my debut with Camerini and I

worked a lot with Gennaro Righelli.

I play the part of the bon vivant.

- I was the butler in "Heartthrob. "

- Yes, of course.

- But you're much too young to remember.

- No, I do. I really do.

By the way, you're a reporter,

aren't you?

- I could give you an interview.

- Sure, except I'm not working yet.

My friends, we have a newspaper

reporter among us.

- Hello.

- Hello.

- I presume you will be staying here.

- Enjoy your meal.

I refuse to believe that the people

of Great Britain, always friends...

feel it their duty to lead Europe

into a catastrophe...

by defending an African nation.

The resemblance is frightening.

Universally branded and without the

shadow of any kind of civilization...

against this nation of heroes,

artists, poets, saints, navigators.

What do you want, Ma?

Send the young man in here.

I want to have a look.

- Antonietta, she wants to see him.

- All right, miss.

Shall I take him?

If the Mediterranean

is a shortcut for England...

and a permanent zone for Russia,

for us Italians it is like itself.

Keep still for a minute

or you'll knock me over. May I come in?

- May I come in?

- Yes, and bring him with you.

Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI (Italian: [fedeˈriːko felˈliːni]; 20 January 1920 – 31 October 1993) was an Italian film director and screenwriter.

His films have ranked, in polls such as Cahiers du cinéma and Sight & Sound, as some of the greatest films of all time. Sight & Sound lists his 1963 film 8½ as the 10th-greatest film of all time. In a career spanning almost fifty years, Fellini won the Palme d'Or for La Dolce Vita, was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, and directed four motion pictures that won Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. In 1993, he was awarded an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles.Besides La Dolce Vita and 8½, his other well-known films include La Strada, Nights of Cabiria, Juliet of the Spirits, Satyricon, Amarcord and Fellini's Casanova. more…
