A tale of consuming love and artistic creation--based on a true story--that reimagines the last romance of the legendary filmmaker Federico Fellini.
In "Director's Cut "we enter the mind of Snaporaz, the lion of Italian cinema, as he slips into a coma in his final days. Having always drawn inspiration from the world of his dreams, he welcomes the chance to take account of his life, and in particular his most recent love affair, with a beautiful but perilously highstrung actress called Gala. He tells the story:
Lured by the glamour of Rome, Gala and her boyfriend Maxim, an actor as well, are hoping to be discovered when they manage the impossible: entree to the studio of the great master. Almost at once and despite an age difference of four decades, a mutual enthrallment develops between Snaporaz and Gala, leaving Maxim an anxious observer of Gala's physical and spiritual destruction, as she falls down a rabbit hole of self-delusion that will lead her both to prostitution and self-cloistering in an abandoned church. Snaporaz's intoxicatingly baroque--Felliniesque--account of the affair slyly challenges us again and again to ask what is dream and what is reality, and to conclude that the difference is irrelevant when such a genius immerses himself in his most natural element: the imagination.
