Federico Fellini's epic tale of Roman decadence circa 1960 focuses on the adventures of gossip columnist Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni) as he runs with the jet set. Following him as he interviews a young starlet (Anita Ekberg), rushes a girlfriend (Yvonne Furneaux) to hospital after a suicide attempt, and attends a variety of more-or-less wild parties, it shows how he is both drawn to and repelled by the rich lifestyle that provides his living, and details the crisis in which he finds himself torn between an easy enjoyment of the ephemeral and a desire for a more productive life like that of his intellectual friend (Alain Cuny). The film features a host of famous scenes, including Anita Ekberg's dance in the Trevi fountain, the statue of Christ lifted by helicopter over the city, and the exhausted striptease of the final moments, as well as early performances from Anouk Aimee and future Velvet Underground singer Nico.
