I wonder if Kino is using the restoration that was completed for this year's 100th anniversary of Fellini's birth by the Cineteca di Bologna? Or the older master created by Carlotta films prior to 2008? Kino's website doesn't say anything beyond a description of the basics.

I for some reason love this film. When I first saw it, I was even more confused however. Due to a scheduling cock up in the paper, I entered just as the film resumed after intermission, and had even less understanding of what was going on than the average viewer. It was a time when theatres would call film showings "continuous", and I had more time than today, so I decided to stay to see it again to figure it out. Imagine my surprise when it started with a whole section I had not realized I had missed! -- I still couldn't figure out the movie!

Yes - sometimes you just have to roll with "mad" Fellini - I mean we all like Amacord and I Vitelloni, but there are days when you just crave "The Full Federico". Fellini Satyricon is even more baffling. During my carefree student days eons ago, I even read Petronius Arbiter's Satyricon to try and get a grip on what Fellini was trying to convey, but I was still baffled. Haven't seen Casanova, so I'm looking forward to this.
