Juliet of the Spirits
Giulietta degli spiriti
Giulietta Masina makes a glorious return in Fellini’s first Technicolor feature.
Dir Federico Fellini
With Giulietta Masina, Sandra Milo, Mario Pisu
Although he had worked with colour before – for an episode in Boccaccio 70 (1962) – Juliet of the Spirits was Fellini’s first colour feature. It sees the director reunited with his actor wife Giulietta Masina (La Strada, Nights of Cabiria) who plays a middle-class housewife seeking solace in the world of psychics and seers, figures that Fellini himself had always been fascinated by.
