Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In the DVD of 8 1 / 2 8 and 2 / 2: CC collection, all Chinese subtitles, comment subtitles and interview gags have been strongly supported by the “Fellini Association of friends of China”, all of which have been reviewed and translated by them. In particular, I thank the Association for providing a complete OST for the production of this film. At the same time, through the “Fellini friends of China Association”, L9 invited the most famous “Fellini film lover” in China – the famous comedian in Hong Kong: Mr. Wu Mengda. He specially wrote a full-length Chinese commentary subtitle for the top work of the standard collection series, “eight and two thirds”, Mr. Wu Mengda not only expressed his infinite admiration for a generation of film master Fellini over the past decades, but also expounded the important role played by Fisher’s films in his acting career over the years (like a flowing river!!!), In this Chinese commentary, Mr. Wu Mengda insisted on humbly calling himself a “film actor” and refused to be called a “film star” to express his respect and humility for a generation of film masters. Once again, special thanks to “Fellini Association of friends of China” and Mr. Wu Mengda for giving us a teaching lesson in film art.

Mr. Wu Mengda has left us forever today. In order to express my love and respect for him, I have adjusted this article. Here I bow to Mr. Wu Mengda and go well all the way.

=============================================================================

About the title and content of “eight and two thirds”:

At the beginning of Fellini’s early creation, he took the road of Italian Neo realism focusing on material poverty.

But starting with the 1954 Road,

Fellini filmed the lonely Trilogy (the road, the liar and the night of Cabria),

And parted ways with new realism.

His works began to pay attention to people’s psychological poverty.

When he started shooting this film in 1962,

Before that, he shot sweet life, which satirized the rotten life of the bourgeoisie and brought him great reputation

Everyone expected Fellini’s next work to be a masterpiece.

But Fellini fell into a creative crisis.

He didn’t know what he was going to shoot.

Although the producer has prepared the funds and the actors and staff are in place, he still has no clue.

Until one day, a staff member’s birthday, invited Fellini to a birthday party.

The staff said they expected Fellini to make a good film,

Fellini had a flash of light,

I decided to focus on my own creative crisis.

Shoot a director who doesn’t know what he’s going to shoot.

Before that, he had made six feature films (White Chief, wanderer, road, liar, night of kabilia and sweet life),

A feature film directed jointly with others (debut “the spring and autumn of performing arts”),

And two feature short films (urban love and three beauties in spring),

In terms of sequence (6 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.5),

This is his eighth and half film.

Therefore, the film is called eight and a half.

===============================================================================

About director Fellini and his films

Fellini was often asked such questions

Why do you make movies

Fellini replied

The reason why I make movies

Because I can’t do anything else

Everything takes shape in a natural way

Although I never wanted to be a director

But when I started the first day

As if I should do this

Fellini said never talk about movies

Because in terms of the nature of film

A movie is beyond words

It’s like you can’t hope to turn a painting into music

When talking about movies, you will fall into the limited and dull assumption

Focus on the image structure and simplified features

A movie is no longer a movie

Fellini said making a movie was like running away

It seems that movies are an infectious disease

He must also be patient to watch it, but he must get rid of it at any time

When the film is finished and handed in

He wants to get sick again

A film is a dream for Fellini

Hazy and eager to expose his identity

When someone explains it, it will be very shy

Or is it more desirable to remain mysterious

For Fellini

Every movie is the same

He can’t tell the difference between this one and that one

He’s always making pictures about it

And it’s only about images

Because he felt a desire to tell stories

And storytelling is the only game he finds interesting

This game is necessary for his fantasy and personality

A dark studio

All lights turn on instantly

Like a dream

Attracted all the vitality of Fellini

The film provided an hour and a half of pleasure

It provides a season that belongs to Fellini’s life

A journey

With dreamy color

Fellini claimed to make a movie

It’s a liar’s game

But he also said he was honest

Fellini is like other film masters

Is the real star in their works

Their creativity

Their imagination

Their innovation in film techniques

And their enthusiasm for movies

All get the response of people of different times at different times

This is the greatness of these film masters

When Fellini conceived a film

No matter how ambiguous its source is

It is always reflected in the form of a story

This is the most important stage in his film creation

When he felt that the literary thought of the film script had dried up

He opened his office

Let the extras in

Let hundreds of faces pass in front of him

He described it as a ceremony to create an atmosphere

That’s how Fellini started choosing actors

This is one of the most important factors in his special film talent

He once said: face is my words

If a filmmaker’s vocabulary

It can be judged separately according to the number and characteristics of the actors in his film

Then Fellini’s work can be compared to a movie

Fellini may not be the most profound of the film masters

But it is undoubtedly the most charming

Although his films sometimes miss the point

But it can always dazzle people

The pure visual beauty makes Fellini’s films shine

Some people compare Fellini’s film to a picture of unrestrained nature

Fellini himself said

He is the weaver and blower of clouds

Any attempt to find a special meaning in his films

It will be in vain

He’s making a movie for himself

Just to make yourself happy

Even when masters such as Rossini commented on “sweet life”

Fellini also felt that Rossini valued the meaning of the film

He thinks that artists should have marginal character

A person who is juxtaposed between concrete reality and abstract reality

When the dialogue between concrete reality and abstract reality begins

Everyone should stand on the edge

For Fellini

He doesn’t want to say anything

Just want to show them

Fellini himself doesn’t like film critics

He thought they were all speculating about his film

At that time, Film Semiotics did not rise

But with the birth of this film

A year later, the Frenchman Metz published a famous paper on Film Semiotics

Many examples of Fellini’s films are directly cited

It may be something Fellini himself didn’t expect

Maze thinks highly of Fellini

So do many other film critics

American director Woody Allen is also a fan of Fellini

I’ve made many films to pay tribute to him secretly

Other directors who worship Fellini are

Terry Gillian, who wrote the preface to this DVD

And Peter Greenaway in the UK

And Emir Kusturica of Yugoslavia, etc

Fellini, in addition to this film

He also won three Oscars for best foreign language film

He is also the director who won the most Oscars for best foreign language film.

===============================================================================

About the life of director Fellini

Fellini was born in Rimini, Italy in 1920

It is said that he ran away from home with a circus in his childhood

But Fellini claimed to have only been away for three days

So Fellini has always been fascinated by the atmosphere of the circus

After 1937, Fellini began to draw comics for a living

Two years later, he took his mother and sister to Rome to settle down

His comic books are exaggerated and funny

Very popular with readers

At that time, Italy was one of the axis of evil in World War II

But Fellini used various excuses to avoid military service

It is conceivable that if he became a soldier, there might be a master missing in the history of film

In 1942, he met actress Juliet Masita

The two fell in love and soon got married

He got a job in a film company

I met Rossini, who will become a great director in film history in the future

In 1944, Italy was defeated and the Americans settled in Rome

Fellini and his friends opened a portrait studio

Soldiers often look for his portrait

While Fellini was opening his studio, Rossini came to him

Hoping he could make a movie with him, Fellini went

He was working as a screenwriter

Rome, undefended city, a masterpiece shot by Rossini

It was Fellini who wrote the play

This film not only gave birth to a new term in the history of film: Italian new realism

meanwhile

It also moved an American actress to tears

Through this film, I fell in love with Rossini who I had never met

Gave up his golden career in Hollywood

Find Rossini in Italy

She is Oscar winning actress Ingrid Bergman

……

Fellini wrote many films from 1944 to 1947

In 1950, he first tried to work as a film director

His directorial debut is the spring and Autumn Festival of performing arts, which he co directed with others

He independently directed the satirical comedy chief white in 1951,

The film introduced him to the composer Nello rota

Since then, they have forged a deep friendship

The two have worked together on many good films, just like many noted combinations of directors and musicians in the history of film

Speaking of Fellini, everyone will think of rota’s music

When it comes to rota, people think of Fellini’s films

In 1952, Fellini directed the semi autobiographical film Mavericks

About the loss and self awakening of three young people who came to Rome to find a job in Rome

This is the true portrayal of Fellini and his good friends coming to Rome

Three good friends came to Rome

Finally, they left for various reasons

But only Fellini persevered

The Mavericks brought Fellini his first International Honor: the Silver Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival

Fellini’s next film “the road” is his work of breaking up with new realism

Starring Fellini’s wife Masita

This film is Fellini’s first transformation work from social reality to spiritual reality.

“Road” was a huge success and sold well at the box office

There is also an Oscar for best foreign language film

This is Fellini’s first Oscar.

At this point, Fellini began to suffer from depression

He received psychotherapy and began to be exposed to psychoanalysis

This has had a great impact on his future creation

In 1955, he filmed the liar, starring Oscar winner bradrick Crawford

In 1957, Fellini filmed the night of capria, also starring his wife

About the miserable life of a prostitute

Also won an Oscar

To this end, Fellini stayed in the United States for a month

Hollywood wants him to film there

Give the best treatment

Fellini found America really boring

So he soon returned to Rome and began to write his new play, sweet life

The film depicts a tabloid reporter doing nothing

I want to climb up

But in the end, he lost himself and became a victim of decadent life

The photographer in the film is paparazzo

As soon as the film was released, people named the sneaky journalists after him

The source of the popular term “paparazzi” — from Fellini’s “sweet life”

The film was welcomed by the public, but rejected by the clergy

To this end, Fellini asked the Pope to intercede for the film

The film won the Golden Palm Award at Cannes Film Festival

Its success led Fellini to start his own film company

In 1970, Fellini and three famous directors, de sika and viscanti, etc

Co filmed the comedy “Boccaccio 70”

Fellini directed one of them, the temptation of Dr. Anthony

About an old professor who couldn’t stand a beautiful milk advertisement

Secretly destroy advertisements at night

As a result, the girl in the advertisement stepped down and chased the old professor

In 1962, Fellini’s creative crisis led him to shoot eight and a half

The film won him three Oscars

In 1964, he began filming Juliet the ghost

The film starred his wife

Tell the story of a middle-aged woman who experienced a heart demon

Some critics call it the female version of “eight and a half”

This is also Fellini’s first color feature film

The film is gorgeous and charming

It shows Fellini’s control over color

The film made Fellini have a strong interest in channeling

Fellini then began to prepare the film “Giuseppe’s journey to mastona”

Fellini was made in memory of his friend’s death

Because the producers and actors are against him

The film was not made

Fellini was also troubled by strange dreams

In 1968, Fellini made an hour long documentary for ABC

Fellini: the director’s notebook describes the difficulties he encountered in preparing Giuseppe’s journey to mastona

And he looked around for extras for the new film “love myth”

In 1969, Fellini filmed the myth of love

The film is based on a first century novel

About the journey of two friends in that era

Fellini said that the film was made for young Italians today

The decadent atmosphere of that era coincided with the decadent atmosphere of the 1960s

In 1971, Fellini made the TV film clown

Preparing his new film Rome

Rome is a rambling film

The director played by Fellini looks for traces of ancient Rome and the current situation of Rome

Of course, there are the director’s memories when he came to Rome

It’s a wonderful ukiyo painting

In 1973, Fellini filmed amacod

Amakod is a Rimini dialect

The film recalls the story of Rimini town

Scenes of youth stories are staged

Full of nostalgia

The film won Fellini the Oscar for best foreign language film for the fourth time

In 1975,
