Federico Fellini: Comments on Film

3.85  ·  Rating Details ·  27 Ratings  ·  4 Reviews

Far more than an in-depth interview spanning the work of a gifted filmmaker, this is a foray into nearly everything. Like Fellini’s films it views life as a constant interplay between reality and fantasy, between surface and the mystery that lies beneath.

باور دارم که حرفه ای که در آن کار می کنم مرا به صورتی کاملا طبیعی به سوی احساسی مذهبی سوق می داد.... چه کسی ما را به ماجرای خلاقیت می کشاند؟...هیچ مگر اعتقاد به چیزی، یا کسی که در اعماق ما نفهته است، کسی که فقط اندکی می شناسیم، بخشی پنهان کار و فرزانه از ما، که به جای ما به کار مشغول است، فقط این ایمان می تواند عملیاتی تا این حد مرموز را عنایت کند. این بخش ناشناس ما، که با اعتماد به او و لگام نزدن به او، و آزاد گذاشتنش، کمکش می کنیم. در این حس اعتماد، به گمان من، می توان حسی مذهبی دید.

A fantastic man who makes fantastic films. He's clever and witty almost as if by accident, free of pretention. He seems to express this unexpected humility for his life and work that makes him so endearing. Yet through his humility you get the sense that every word is incredibly insightful and that his view of the world is uniquely his. I will post some of my favorite bits of the interview for a taste...

It was as interesting as one of his movies. The careless way he answered the questions makes you smile often while you read the book, and when he talks about people and illustrate their characteristics he just drown you into his personal world.
