free entrance to the city of women

La città delle donne” (1979) is one of Fellini’s very best, but sadly the way it was received upon its release still determines the way the film is being perceived today. And as the film hasn’t been (and still isn’t) easy to get hold of, that perception hasn’t really changed yet. Yet it’s just been released on (midprice) dvd by Lime-Lights (Italian version, Dutch subtitles) ànd apparently, you can now watch the movie for free (?) via … while it’s also available via … For further enjoyment ànd education, I strongly recommend reading the heartwarming Une année avec Fellini – journal de tournageby Sonia Schoonejans (préface d’Alberto Moravia) as well (= Collection Essai Caméra #3, Paris: Archimbaud Klincksieck 2009, ISBN 9782252037287). Too bad about the many typo errors in the book, though, e.g. the correct spelling is Metro Goldwyn Mayer (not Goldwin Meyer, p.135), Mae West (not May, p.166) or Gino Soccio (not Socci, p.185) … (Germaine Greer‘s name hàs been spelled correctly.)
