I just saw this movie in Theaters in Athens, Greece. This movie is really good and i hope that it will be shown in the U.S. (CinemaCon, at the end of May, 2003) and it will be a good decision. I saw this movie twice, first time in Greek and second time in English. I was pleased that this movie won the Best Screenplay Oscar, because it is one of the most beautiful movies that i have ever seen. I think that it is a great movie and will watch it again and again. I think that the Greek people should see this movie and if you are one of them, you should go to the theater, but if you are not, don't go to the theater. You won't regret it.

I have to say I have never read any of Fellini's films, but I did get an education in Cinema and have a great deal of respect for him and his work. When I heard of this movie, I was impressed and intrigued, and had to see it. The story line was not exactly clear, but I think this was one of the strengths of the movie. I loved the characters, their motivations, their flaws, and the strength of the relationships that developed between them. I think this movie is very under rated. It should be seen by everyone, regardless of what type of person they are. I highly recommend it.

I've seen many other movies, and I have to say that this movie is by far the best. It was a little bit weird at first, but as you continue to watch it, you start to understand what's going on. It's not just about a woman who gets hurt, but also about a woman who gets hurt for the love of a man who has hurt her in the past. It's about a woman who has hurt herself, and that is what makes it so powerful. But the message that the movie gives is the most important thing. You have to see it. I know, I know. It's just not something that Hollywood will make again.

I love this movie, I really do. I am an Italian film buff. I've been waiting to see this movie for a long time. I have seen it three times now. My first encounter was in the early 90's, it was really the first time I had ever seen the movie. The second time was in 2005, and again it was in the early hours of the morning, when I was out with a friend. I was like "oh my gosh. this is like the greatest movie ever." In the beginning of the third time, I gave up trying to sleep. I couldn't fall asleep, because I was so involved in the movie. I was the story, the director and the star of the movie, I was the storyteller, I was the person I wanted to see. And it was amazing. I've been waiting to watch this movie for a long time. I saw it on the DVD, and I still love it. I've never been that inspired, and I was not before watching the movie. This is my favorite movie, and I was so touched by it. I am not the only one. It is an amazing movie. The director has done an amazing job. The screenplay, the actors, the music, the beautiful cinematography. it's a movie that makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you smile. I can't wait to see it again.

I'm a huge fan of my beloved comedy so I couldn't wait to see this film. I've had it since it came out in 1992. A few years ago I bought the DVD. The director of the movie is awesome, who also directed the late great Bruce Almighty. This is definitely a film that needs to be seen. Although a few scenes of violence, the story is also touching. Fellini was famous for his subtle comedy and the film is much more of the same. I highly recommend this film. It is definitely one of the greatest comedy films ever made. 10/10

This film is great, not only because of the cinematography, but the film is wonderfully written. It tells a story of love and friendship, and portrays a time in the life of a couple who try to reconcile the family and country which separated them. The story is very modern in its conception, and the images are very beautiful and express a wealth of emotion and passion. The story is just what the title says: "In Search of Fellini." This film was filmed in New York, and it is probably the most visually beautiful film ever made. It is a film that you can watch over and over again and never get tired of. I just recently saw it on cable and thought it was fantastic.

This movie is absolutely amazing. It is very well thought out. The acting was great, the story was great. I haven't been this impressed with a movie in a very long time. The only thing I would say was that some of the dialogue was a little cheesy. The way the director shot the scenes was amazing. It's like you are right there. You are experiencing everything the actors are feeling. It's almost as if the actors are in front of you. It was really intense. If you want to go see a movie like this, go see this movie. You will not be disappointed.

I think it is great to have a beautiful story told in a different way. What is more the writing is great. Great cinematography and fantastic acting. I think that everyone should watch it and will be in love with it. In search of Fellini is a very important film that can be watched several times. The beauty and the depth of the film is amazing and it makes you feel good. It is a very emotional movie. I am sad that Fellini died. I think that everyone should watch this film and watch it again.

The late, great, great James Toback (who directed and co-wrote the screen adaptation) wrote the script for this film that was a huge hit with critics and audiences alike. It's the story of the first steps of film becoming a staple of the zeitgeist of our times, and the personal sacrifice of two people who have to go their separate ways to be reunited. In this case, it's director Tony Scott and writer/star Richard Curtis, both of whom were born to make films. As a kid, Curtis was the "big" kid in school. He wasn't quite at the point of where he was going to go big with films, but he was in the very early stages of his career, and Scott, who was the kid in school who was known to do whatever he wanted to do, could have easily gotten away with just putting Curtis in a film, knowing that he could make millions on a film he had absolutely no experience in. But because of this, the two got together to create a movie that is, for the most part, great. It's almost too perfect, the way they were able to do this. They are extremely likable and have chemistry with one another that makes you want to see them go on forever. Also, the way they made this feel real is as real as it can be. It's just like a real story of real people. This is a story of a love story between two people who have met, but have no real love to each other. The first time we see them together is on screen, at a party, which they both agreed to attend. There is no clear reason for the two to be together, but one is willing to do anything to get her chance at that special someone. That's when we first see the real love between these two. Their first meeting was not the real reason that they became friends. It was their friendship, the one that made them really want to make a film together. One of the best things about this film is the way it tells a real story. They give us a glimpse of a couple that is falling apart, and their lives and love. At one point in the film, the main character tells her mother that she is beginning to wonder about her life. It is the real, immediate feeling that she has about her life, because that is what we experience, in the film. That is what the film does, make us feel that. The other thing that they did was make it feel real. As I said, they gave us a glimpse of a couple that has been together for years, but never really had that special someone in their lives. It's all for a reason. This is all true. I think that there are a lot of people out there who have never experienced the journey of a relationship, that have never known how these things work. This film shows that this can be for you too. This is not a movie that makes you feel good. It shows you how it feels, and it is a film that makes you feel real. A film that tells the real story. That's what this film is about, and it does that perfectly. I loved this film, and it is one of my favorite films of all time. I hope you will love it, too. 9/10

For me, this is probably my favourite movie ever, so far. I had seen the trailer and thought "Well this looks like Fellini's masterpiece" and was about to write a review when I found out that this movie was about a woman and her husband who are about to get married. So I read the plot synopsis and was like, "Okay, that sounds a lot like Fellini's masterpiece, let's go watch it". I thought the acting was superb, especially when the wife goes on her "jazz walk" (which is how they dress, with long, flowing gowns and strange and stylish hairstyles). This was the movie that made me think "oh wow, this is Fellini, I should be watching his stuff". It is one of the few movies that are on my must watch list, and I'll probably watch it again before I die. If you don't believe me, try watching it for the first time. It will be worth it.

In Search of Fellini is a film which was made to mark the release of Fellini's Vittelian Dilemma and also an homage to the Fellini who inspired it. To tell you the truth I'm not a fan of Fellini, in fact I just never get past the F and Fs. But the film did a great job of telling the story of an Italian family (the Ligas) in 1930s Italy who are caught up in a forbidden love affair and it is through this story that we see the family at it's zenith in the 1930s. It also has some interesting visual moments such as the circus scene, the dances and the house in the ruins. There is also a touching scene involving the actor that he plays as he contemplates his future and when he meets the young man he is a great admirer of his. The acting is superb throughout and to add to that the film is full of real life scenes such as the wrestling scene which is incredibly moving. Overall it is a great film that has a great story to tell. A great film to be watched by any person.

I am a big fan of Paul Thomas Anderson's work and I really enjoyed this film. The first thing I would say is that I would have never imagined that this could be the film that opened my eyes to what film could be. It was beautifully shot, very emotive, very thought provoking and very real. The story of the married couple who are forced to flee their home and both their children, and the potential consequences for their own actions. It was heartbreaking, it was hard to watch and it was absolutely terrifying. Paul Thomas Anderson knows how to portray a character in the most realistic way possible, he was a great story teller. I loved the soundtrack, it was incredible, the images were both beautiful and terrifying. I don't know what the critics were expecting but they were completely wrong, I would say that I enjoyed this film and it definitely wasn't a waste of time. The only thing that I didn't really like was the final scene, I felt like they could have just left it at the end. I did enjoy it, and I am definitely going to go and see it again when it comes out on DVD. 10/10.

The first time I saw this movie I was about ten years old, I remember that it was a very successful hit at that time. I never knew a person in my life that had watched the movie that long. Everytime I watched the movie, I was moved by it. When I was thirteen I went to watch a second edition DVD of it. And I was even more moved by it. This is the movie I watch the most, the one I watched more than any other. The point of the movie is to tell us that we can not be sure about our existence, that our mind and our lives are much better and much more beautiful and wonderful than we can imagine. At the end of the movie I was not sure what I wanted to say, I wanted to tell everyone that I love this movie. And I did. Thank you for this movie, thank you to all of you who had the time to watch it.

The best movie ever made. From the beginning to the end the movie is about two men who is a musical genius. There is no other movie that talks about two men like that. The only thing I don't understand is the ending. I don't understand why the movie was a great success. Maybe it was because it was about two men that were a musical genius. Anyway this movie is not for everyone. If you want to see a good movie with two men then see this movie. I give 10/10. You will love it. That's all.

I was waiting for this movie since last year, but I decided to wait for it because I've seen many people complaining about the movie. I'll have to say that I didn't think it was as good as it could have been. I was really looking forward to it. It was so wonderful, like some kind of fairy tale. I love watching beautiful cinematography and the movie was visually beautiful. I think that the movie is very well made. It was easy to follow and I think that it was a very smart movie. I really enjoyed this movie. I think it was very well done. There are so many beautiful scenes and the cinematography was just beautiful. I just think that the movie is a great one. I think that the movie was very well made. It's a very sweet movie and it's just a very well done one. I don't know why people are complaining about this movie, but I think that it is a very good movie.

i never felt like this movie was a masterpiece but i felt so much emotion watching this movie. it was an amazing story of a man who loves to give to others and then to return the favor. the story is very well put together and is much better than any other movies with an ending like this. it was not overrated or cliche. it had some dramatic moments but not overdone and the emotion was always there. the only thing i didn't like about the movie was that the main character had such a wide personality but also was very honest and good natured. in my opinion the movie would have been better if it ended a little earlier. but overall the movie was so well put together. i would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a well put together story. i feel that it is one of the best movies i have seen in a long time and i am so glad that it was made because it was really good. if you love movies with a great story and have a great heart then i would recommend this movie to you. i feel that this movie is more than deserving of an 8 out of 10. there are so many people who give this movie horrible reviews and i feel that there is a lot of people who have been fooled. people have rated this movie to be terrible and all i can say is that this is one of the best movies i have ever seen. if you love movies that have a story and emotions then you will love this movie. i would highly recommend that anyone watch this movie. i would also recommend that anyone buy this movie because it is a great movie and has great actors.

I loved this movie. I'm a big fan of the writer of these 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' videos, Jarmusch. He does a great job writing these dark stories about a father, who takes a boy to an island, where they learn about life and the world. Then, there are the stories about the animals, and there are the movies. This is the first of Jarmusch's works that I've seen. I loved his movies, but, they were not the same as I love the 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' videos. That's the only reason I'd recommend this movie. It's not perfect, but it's a great movie to watch. Don't go into this movie with high expectations, but go in with an open mind. You'll be pleasantly surprised. I'll be watching it again. I don't think I'll ever forget the last scene in the movie, the one where the father finally tells the boy that his parents are dead. It's a great movie, and you should see it.

This is not the story of a doctor falling in love with his patient. No, this is a story of two people who fell in love and were forced to break up, only to return. The relationship of the doctor to his patient is a long-standing secret. He always knew what was going to happen, but it just never happened. It is not until the last few days of the relationship does the doctor finally learn what it's like to be in love, to fall in love. I think this is a very touching and emotional film. I thought it was very powerful and the story was told very well. I didn't expect to be that emotional, but it made me feel it. The acting was really good. The main characters were played very well. I don't think they are famous actors, but they were great. The Doctor was great, as was the other lead character. The other actors were great as well. I think this movie is very well done and shows a very strong love story.

This is not a movie that can be recommended to just anyone. I first saw it in 1977 and have been looking for it ever since. I thought that this movie was a classic but have since forgotten the full film. Now I realize that there was a lot of talent involved. There is no doubt in my mind that this film should have won at least one academy award. The cast was great and I thought that all the scenes were incredible. It was a masterpiece. I still like to look at this film whenever I get a chance and I love it every time. It is a must-see for anyone who wants to see a film of the time and still have a strong feeling that it was the best film ever made. The best part about the film is that it is not "Americanized" and it is actually a true story about what happened to a man in search of himself and his feelings for a woman. I also like that the film deals with the subject of homosexuality in a very realistic and mature way. This is one of the few films I can watch again and again and I don't see why this film is not available on DVD. It is a film that everyone should see, so that everyone can experience what the actors were going through and how the film dealt with those issues in a realistic way. This is a movie that should be seen by everyone.

I'm a female, I'm gay and I've seen a lot of gay movies. I'm glad to say this one was a step up. The story is simple but the actors and the story are brilliant. I'm looking forward to watching it again.

The story of Fellini's THE DISMISSED (1897) in its entirety and the origins of the film's title is told by Peter Sarsgaard in a brilliant manner. It's in no way a spoiler that the brothers Alberto and Susana (played by the outstanding William H. Macy and Pablo Schreiber) who have abandoned Italy for America and live in America until their eventual return to Italy, are hardly the angels who they have portrayed in the film. Although, as always, it is the great music of Fellini that makes this a classic. The movie is a stunning example of cinematography, and the sound design which is perhaps one of the greatest in film history. Everything from the cinematography, to the sound design, to the music, to the acting and the dialog, are all outstanding, and the entire film is a remarkable work of art. A true masterpiece.

When the film ended I started to get a big smile on my face. This is a film you have to see. I have only watched it once and will only watch it once again. The camera work is excellent. I had never seen such a superb hand held shot in a film. My friends have been telling me about the film for years and have finally had the guts to go and watch it. I am very glad I did. You need to see this film. You will be shocked at the lack of violence and swearing. I give this film a 10. It is amazing and if you have not seen it yet you are missing out on something big.

Every year I get the chance to see all kinds of movies that I never would have thought about before, so when I saw the movie, I was very surprised, and I don't know why. I love Italian cinema, so this is a big surprise. I found the movie very interesting, it's not the typical romantic-drama movie, but I'm not sure if it's really for people who like romance. I think the movie is much better for people who love the cinema. I also find the characters in the movie very interesting. I liked how they acted, it's good that the characters were likeable and interesting. I also found the movie interesting because it's not typical for the movie. It was interesting and I also liked the way it was shot. I think this is a great movie for everyone, I recommend this movie to everyone.
