    Yi yi (2000) ........... 10/10
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0244316/
    this is an exceptional stunning movie. If I should compare it to a western movie, I would say Magnolia. It has a similar length of 3 hours, and tries to depict the life of one family in Taipei. All generations are present - young children exploring life, a dying grandmother, an adolescent daugther discovering love, a middle aged couple going through a crisis. It has an exceptional camera. This movie makes it into my personal 100 movies or so, that I rate 10/10.

    La dolce vita (1960) ................... 10/10
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053779/
    the famous Fellini film that was forbidden by Vatican in its time and that gave the world the word "paparazzi". It is an existentialist film full of symbols. The main protagonist is a paparazzi journalist, who is drawn in by Rome's high society, nobility, rich people, Hollywood movie stars and is spending his life in an endless carousel of parties, alcohol, entertainment, sex (that is the sweet life). But he becomes emotionally hollow, unable to love and his life meaningless. Almost every scene in the movie is symbolic. The movie starts with a statue of Jesus being flown out of Rome by a helicopter, while the helicopter driver chats with some naked ladies on the roof. The movie ends at a beach, where a young innocent lady speaks to the main protagonist (Mastroianni), but he cannot hear her and turns his back to her. There is no more redemption for him out of his moral decay.

    The concept of the film I like, but didn't quite enjoy it, it is something to do with Marcello Mastroianni I think as I had similar difficulty enjoying 8 1/2.

    My favorite Fellini films are Satyricon and La Strada.

    Watched this in the afternoon while my wife was taking a class:



    A very thoughtful movie whose themes have been playing out since the dawn of humans and their families.
