Eight And A Half

The film"s page

Guido Anselmi, a film director, is stuck for inspiration in the middle of writing a screenplay. He withdraws to a health resort. His wife Louisa, his mistress Carla, his friends, his actors and his producer come to pay a visit. They all want him to finish writing the film. He takes refuge in endless daydreaming. Wandering between dream and reality, Fellini plays out his own anxiety toward creation.
