Fredrico Fellini: An investigation into his films and philosophy
Fredrico Fellini An investigation into his films and philosophy Author:Gilbert Salachas From his tentative beginnings as a filmmaker with Rossellini and Lattuada, through his masterpiece 8 1/2 to the present, Frederico Fellini has expressed with powerful grace the pain and despair, the corruption, yet withal the poignant sweetness of a man in our time. In this study Gilbert Salachas, a major French film critic and editor in chief ... more »of the magazine Tele Cine, considers with affection, respect, but always with clear insight, what the world has said to Fellini and how Fellini has given his world back to us, enriching us all thereby. Mr. Salachas' study is supplemented by selections from Fellini's own thoughts of filmmaking, by excerpts from screenplays, and by a broad spectrum of critical and personal opinion.
Translated from the French series Cinema D'Aujord'hui:
Film lovers who read French have long known and admired Cinema D'Aujourd'hui, the distinguished series of monographs on film directors published in France by Editions Seghers. The series -- each book in a up-to-date version, complete with many photographs--is now becoming available in English, to the enlargement and enrichment of film thought in the English-speaking world.« less
