Federico Fellini's epic 1980 fantasia introduced the start of the Maestro's delirious late period. A surrealist tour - de - force filmed on soundstages and locations alike, and overflowing with the same sensory (and sensual) invention heretofore found only in the classic movie - musicals (and Fellini's own oeuvre), La città delle donne [City of Women] taps into the era's restless youth - culture, coalescing into nothing less than Fellini's post - punk opus.

Marcello Mastroianni appears as Fellini's alter ego in a semi - reprise of his character from 8 - 1/2, Snàporaz. As though passing into a dream, the charismatic avatar finds himself initiated into a phantasmagoric world where women - or an idea of women - have taken power, and which is structured like an array of psychosexual set - pieces - culminating in a bravura hot - air balloon that decisively sticks the "anti" up into "climax".

A great adventure "through the looking - glass," as it were, of Fellini's own phallic lens and life - long libidinal ruminations, La città delle donne sharply divided critics at the 1980 Festival de Cannes, some of whom had merely anticipated a nostalgic retread of the earlier Mastroianni works. What they were greeted with, and what remains today, is, in the words of Serge Daney, "a victory of cinema".
