The suave and sexy Marcello Mastroianni is the focus of this five-film tribute. A stage actor and protégé of Luchino Visconti, Mastroianni appeared in more than 170 movies—but the roles with which he remains most identified are in two masterpieces directed by Fellini: “La Dolce Vita” (1960), a portrait of decadence, Italian-style, and “8 ½”, a brilliant, surreal comedy in which the actor embodies the filmmaker’s alter-ego.
