Che strano chiamarsi Federico / How Strange to be Named Federico: Scola Narrates Fellini (2013) DVD9
Ettore Scola's affectionate tribute to Federico Fellini is a magical trip through history and memory, recounting the decades shared by these two deities of cinema.
Ettore Scola has done the film world a great service in making a lilting, smart, easy-over piece of (auto)biography that humorously describes his meeting and decades-long friendship with Federico Fellini. Now that twenty years have passed since the master’s death, "How Strange to be Named Federico, Scola Narrates Fellini" hits just the right notes of whimsy, nostalgia and mocking tomfoolery to bring this memory of Fellini and his times vividly to life. Skillfully mixing actors and archive footage, it’s neither a biopic nor a critical analysis, but more like a filmic reminiscence and an imaginative recreation of Fellini’s inner world by a friend, who happens to be a masterful filmmaker in his own right.
