The White Sheik (Federico Fellini, 1952)

***
Italy



Federico Fellini's first solo directorial effort was this gentle satire about country newlyweds at peril in the big city, with zealously gesticulating Leopoldo Trieste as the husband and hazy Brunella Bovo as the wife. It's pleasant, if arbitrary and drawn-out, for the most part, with the occasional flavourful section that hints at Fellini's future mastery of atmosphere.
