"And the Ship Sails On"
Directed by Federico Fellini
Acclaimed as a fanciful return to form for Federico Fellini 10
years after his Oscar winning, Amarcord. And the Ship
Sails On simultaneously mocks and mourns the passing
of Europe's artistic and aristocratic high society on the eve of World War
I. Set in 1914, the sophisticated guests aboard a luxury liner are
accompanying the ashes of deceased opera singer, Tetua, to her final rest
at sea. Their voyage is interrupted by the rescue of Serbian
refugees who are fleeing the first days of W.W.I. "Absolutely
mesmerizing..." Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide.
Italian with English subtitles. 127 minutes.
