Details

A renowned film director, Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni), is riding a wave of acclaim following the success of his last box office hit. Unexpectedly Guido finds himself suffering from `director`s block`. As he struggles to find a new source of creativity and the inspiration to drive his next film, he is distracted by various writers, producers, actors and actresses, as well as his wife (Anouk Aimée) and his mistress (Sandra Milo). Mentally retreating from those around him, he begins to recall major events in his life, from both happy and painful childhood memories to the trials and tribulations of adulthood and the lovers won and lost over the years. As his dreams and memories intertwine with the present reality, Guido eventually begins to rediscover his missing muse.

Special Features ...Lost Sequence: exclusive 50-minute documentary on the making of 8 ½, as well as that film`s famously lost alternative ending. ...Interview with Lina Wertmuller (the first woman ever to be nominated for an Oscar ® for Best Director); she started as Fellini`s Assistant Director on 8 ½. We caught up with her in Rome, where she invites us into her home to reminisce about her friend - Federico. ...Tribute to Fellini`s speech on receiving his Life Achievement Academy® Award.
