Federico Fellini is, perhaps with Orson Welles, the most original and inventive stylist in the history of cinema. There is in Fellini's cinema a visionary aspect, a dreamlike dimension, a relentless painting of the great human comedy, which make his films summits of a benevolent acuity, a subtle elegance, a troubling complexity. His precise and perfectly balanced aerial use of music and his association with composer Nino Rota have created the most incomparable alchemy between sound and images. The music of Nino Rota is inseparable from the visual and dreamlike world of Fellini. Hearing the work of the first one instantly burst the images of the second. Scrolling through the silent book of posters or photos of Fellini's films brings out Rota's enduring themes and melodies.
