We delve into Fellini territory again with a discussion of Juliet of the Spirits. This 1965 film was Federico Fellini’s first foray into the wonderful world of color film. The film is something of a flip side of one of Fellini’s most popular films, 8½. It stars Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina, as the titular character, a woman who’s at her wit’s ends when she finds that her husband is cheating on her. The film is something of a journey of self-discovery as Juliet works to unburden herself of her past.
