Ciao, Fellini!

The film version of Nine is approaching this Christmas Day. Nine was originally a Broadway musical which itself was based on the classic Federico Fellini film 8 1/2. I've long been a fan of Fellini films. They are always beautifully filmed with arresting visuals that the director seemed to have plucked directly from his own dreams. There is also great drama and abundant humor.

The above clip is of an ad for Italian beer Peroni that pays homage to the 1960's iconic Fellini Film La Dolce Vita. Magnifico!
