Taking its title from the number of films Fellini had completed up to this point (including some short segments for anthology films), 8‘© features Guido being besieged by sycophants and collaborators as he struggles to get started on an unwieldy science-fiction epic. Frequently digressing into surreal and erotic dream sequences, Fellinií_s self-reflexive movie about movie-making climaxes with an exuberant parade in which Guido directs the colourful cast of characters who have played supporting roles in his life.
A favourite film among film directors, Fellinií_s film was the model for several subsequent films about filmmaking, notably Woody Allení_s Stardust Memories (1980).
