Among the films that made Fellini famous, “8 ½” has a prestigious place in film history and is acknowledged as an avant-garde film and a highly influential classic, thus the reason it is his most copied and plagiarized film. Woody Allen, in 1980 with “Stardust Memories”, made a personal version of it and Rob Marshall, the director of Chicago, directed “Nine” in 2009, a musical adaptation.

The premise is a film director spends some time in a mountain resort to recharge and come up with some new ideas.

” won the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Costume Design and it is among the top 10 on the British Film Institute’s Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time.
