“Perhaps every storyteller has this same impossible ambition; I had always wanted to be able to shoot my hometown in this way…” – Qiu Jiongjiong
In Roma, Fellini presents a kaleidoscope of fieldnotes, memories, and film snippets: his early days visiting Rome; the traffic outside the Colosseum; the excavation of ancient artifacts to build the subway; the church turned into a fashion show, motorcycles going in circles at night… His Roman impressions and imaginations are superimposed together: brothels, theaters, restaurants – all added into the furnace, a refurbished ancient myth. Of course, the greatest of them all is cinema, for which the Eternal City is the most wonderful movie set in the eyes of Fellini.
