List: The Movies of Italy

10. Satyricon (1969)

The first of 4 Federico Fellini movies on this list is a strange trip to the Roman Empire of the 1st century.

Memory is a funny thing. It speaks to us from far away, sometimes clear, sometimes hazy, sometimes not at all, forming and reforming our identity as we age, a testament to the journeys we take and of our transient nature as human beings. 302 altre parole
