    "My ambition has always been to restore fantasy to the cinema," revealed great Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini. And so he did in this feverishly brilliant succession of grotesque and macabre images which make the fantasies of his films 8½ and Juliet of the Spirits seem like child`s play. Fellini Satyricon is a colourful spectacle recreating the bawdy and lecherous days of Nero`s reign in ancient Rome.

    It immerses you in a universe unconcerned with human dignity and obsessed with perverse sex - forced or purchased. In Fellini`s own words, it is also "an allegorical satire of our present-day world... a science-fiction film projected into the past, not the future... a journey into the unknown." The decadence of ancient Rome. The self-indulgence of modern society. Fellini masterfully weaved these realities into an astonishing dreamland of sight and sound.
