This is the second time I have watched this movie. The first time I watched it, I was in my early 30s and I included the movie in a Fellini marathon lasting over 9 hours. I also watched the movie on a b & w small TV monitor.

When I watched the movie recently, almost 20 years later, I enjoyed the movie's themes and followed the plot-less story more easily than the first time.

I also know more about Fellini than I did in my early 30s.

Too much distraction in the film!
Besides, I don't like the betrayed wife's hallucinatory journey of self-discovery.
I love Fellini's neo-realistic drama such as La Strada (The Road) made in 1954.
Compared to La Strada, this movie is a junk.

I feel a little guilty for rating a Fellini film at 3 STARS out of 5. His first venture into colour [1965] is beautifully filmed and there are many memorable vignettes, but the story is far too shallow.
