For fellini-philesBy a customer from london , 15 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Fellini takes some getting used to, but as his films go, this is among the ones I've enjoyed most. It helps, I think, that I lived in rome for part of my studies. Fellini clearly has a love affair with the city that you will appreciate if you know the city; otherwise it might be a little confusing

Bizarre world of Fellini's mind.By Jono79con (16 reviews) , 04 Jan 2013Utterly bizarre at times but strangely engrossing none the less. Typical Fellini! The bike's at the end are magnificent as is the rich colour of the film.
over-indulgence mars highlightsBy itstinks (705 reviews) from North of Reading , 08 Feb 2011I caught the fresco sequence over 30 years ago while channel hopping before going out and taken untill now to catch up with the rest of the film.
The fresco sequence is still magnificent but there are lots of longeurs between any bits that charm or have any substance.
Over long and Rome and Romans don't seem that different now from 50 years ago so not much of a historical document.
Fellini's RomaBy chris36 (7 reviews) from Kent , 25 Nov 2010I first saw Fellini's Roma in the 1970s when it came out. I was fascinated by all things Italian and I thought the film was absolutely brilliant. On revisiting it, I have to say that it is extremely self-indulgent and should have been half an hour shorter. On the other hand, there are scenes in it that have been imprinted in my memory for 35 years. How many films can you say that of?
Fellini's homage to RomeBy Leni (179 reviews) from London , 05 May 2010If you quite like Fellini, which is likely if you're over fifty, then you will appreciate this extravagantly self-indulgent autobiography (of sorts) full of images gothic and modern - some will stay with you, others will blow away like the frescoes in the Roman house they come across.
Strangely entertaining for certain viewersBy JonathanWKG (8 reviews) from Woking , 14 Jun 2008This film has very good photography, and it accurately and objectively describes the Roman and Italian lifestyle back in the 60's. However, some scenes are quite surreal and go from a description to mere fantasy and seem just overdone. There is no plot but certain characters tell their story through their perspective and that's amusing. I'd recommend this film to people who know or have visited Rome - if you haven't, you'll probably just get confused and not enjoy this film, especially since it's a tad longish. Don't expect a love story: this is a film about the many faces of Rome throughout social changes. Period.
