    lAira G. Manalo August 31, 2012 COM31 Mr. Edgar Garnace Life is Beautiful (La Vita è Bella) I believe that being free is a matter of choice. We are free because we want to be defined not by other people but ourselves. We make choices together with the thought of making a choice for the good of everyone. We exist not for other people to tie strings on our hands and feet and do the manipulation. I don’t exactly know what to feel about this film. It was a good laugh and a painful…

    Nights of Cabiria and La Dolce Vita left me absolutely stunned, in awe of what I had just witnessed. I found both of these films to be unspeakably beautiful, and in my opinion, the best out of all Fellini's major motion pictures which I have attempted to view this semester. Both films are unmistakably "Fellini" in the characteristic that define his films, especially through the world of fantasy, and deserve a thorough comparison. In La Dolce Vita, we are given a glimpse of a filmmaker…

    There is nothing good about this film.... which is why it is so brilliant. There is no protagonist nor antagonist. Just lost people in a confusing world searching for purpose. It astounds me how much sympathy I felt for each character as they embodied the lost people that wander this world. To name a few: Sylvia, bless her heart, was innocent and childlike, but quite stupid and rather sleazy, and her beauty showed to be her curse. Everybody imposed their concept of who she was and who they wanted…
