FELLINI SATYRICON

Federico Fellini | 1969 | 130 MINS
Italy
Federico Fellini’s career achieved new levels of eccentricity and brilliance with this remarkable, controversial, extremely loose adaptation of Petronius’s classical Roman satire, written during the reign of Nero.

In Detail

After his young lover, Gitone (Max Born), leaves him for another man, Encolpio (Martin Potter) decides to kill himself, but a sudden earthquake destroys his home before he has a chance to do so. Now wandering around ancient Rome, Encolpio encounters one bizarre and surreal scene after another.

He's invited to a poetry reading that ends in violence; is taken hostage by pirates; and is even forced to battle a gladiator disguised as a minotaur in a giant labyrinth. Audacious and ambitious and full of Fellini’s abundant affection for human grotesques, this is a visual adventure you are unlikely to forget.
