Federico Fellini's Academy Award-winning masterpiece 8 1/2 follows burned-out celebrity director Guido (Marcello Mastroianni) through a series of daily encounters and wild daydreams, the first of which finds him ascending into the clouds during a traffic jam. Seeking solace and rejuvenation at a remote health spa, he encounters journalists, his producer, his mistress, and most inconvenient of all, his aloof wife (Anouk Aimée, A Man and a Woman). Flashing among past, present, future and fantasy, Guido longs to make a pure and honest film while his producer goads him into a big budget science fiction spectacle. Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, this visually dazzling epic also stars Claudia Cardinale (The Pink Panther), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday), and Rossella Falk (Modesty Blaise). Outrageous and unforgettable!
