Frederico Fellini's masterwork 8 ½ is difficult to approach largely
because of its reputation. Many critics also state that the film is so
complex that it requires multiple viewings to understand, and this is
likely to intimidate many viewers. But in truth, and in spite of its
surrealistic flourishes, 8 ½ is more straight-forward than its
reputation might lead you to believe.
The storyline itself is very simple. A famous director is preparing a
new film, but finds himself suffering from creative block: he is
obsessed by, loves, and feels unending frustration with both art and
women, and his attention and ambition flies in so many different
directions that he is suddenly incapable of focusing on one possibility
lest he negate all others. With deadlines approaching the cast and crew
descend upon him demanding information about the film--information that
the director does not have because he finds himself incapable of making
an artistic choice.
What makes the film interesting is the way in which Fellini ultimately
transforms the film as a whole into a commentary on the nature of
creativity, art, mid-life crisis, and the battle of the sexes.
Throughout the film, the director dreams dreams, has fantasies, and
recalls his childhood--and this internal life is presented on the
screen with the same sense of reality as reality itself. The staging of
the various shots is unique; one is seldom aware that the characters
have slipped into a dream, fantasy, or memory until one is well into
the scene, and as the film progresses the lines between external life
and internal thought become increasingly blurred, with Fellini giving
as much (if not more) importance to fantasy as to fact.
The performances and the cinematography are key to the film's success.
Even when the film becomes surrealistic, fantastic, the actors perform
very realistically and the cinematography presents the scene in keeping
with what we understand to be the reality of the characters lives and
relationships. At the same time, however, the film has a remarkably
poetic quality, a visual fluidity and beauty that transforms even the
most ordinary events into something slightly tinged by a dream-like
quality. Marcello Mastroianni offers a his greatest performance here, a
delicate mixture of desperation and ennui, and he is exceptionally well
supported by a cast that includes Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimee, and a
host of other notables.
I would encourage people not to be intimidated by the film's
reputation, for its content can be quickly grasped. When critics state
the film requires repeated viewing what they actually seem to mean is
that the film holds up extremely well to repeated viewing; each time it
is seen, one finds more and more to enjoy and to contemplate. Even so,
I would be amiss if I did not point out that people who prefer a cinema
of tidy plot lines and who dislike ambiguity or the necessity of
interpreting content will probably dislike 8 ½ a great deal. For all
others: strongly, strongly recommended.
