Fellini's first film in color is given a glorious release by Criterion. The widescreen anamorphic print (with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1) has a perfect color balance which will amaze viewers. The Italian language soundtrack is in Dolby Digital 2.0 (mono). There are optional English subtitles. Extras include a BBC documentary entitled "Familiar Spirits" made in 1966 with a running time of approximately 21 minutes. This black-and-white film primarily consists of an interview with the director in English in which he discusses numerous topics surrounding his unique creative process. It is well put together and has many insights. The final disk extra is the theatrical trailer for the film. Though slim on extras, this disk is still excellent given the flawless print of the feature.

Juliet of the Spirits 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Cinemaphile More than 1 year ago
Juliet (Guilietta Masina) feels incompetent, and she questions her handsome husband's fidelity. Haunted by visions from her repressed childhood, she sets out on a journey of the mind to find the answers that will bring her world into focus. This film, one of Fellini's first in color, is gorgeous, a feast of images. Funny at times, disturbing at others, it is a tour de force in acting for Felllini's wife Guillietta Masina. Full of bizarre settings, incredible compositions, beautiful and grotesque characters, it is a mind-blowing parade of classic Fellini scenes set to the music of the incomparable Nino Rota. Does it make sense? Not much. Do we care? Not at all.
