8½ (Italian: Otto e mezzo) is a 1963 film written and directed by Italian director Federico Fellini. It is regularly acclaimed by film critics and fans alike as one of the finest films ever made; it consistently ranks in the "top ten best movies ever" lists by cinema institutes and academies; in a recent poll of film directors conducted by the British Film Institute, 8½ was ranked 3rd best film of all time. The film was shot in black-and-white by influential and innovative cinematographer Gianni di Venanzo, and features a soundtrack by Nino Rota.
The plot revolves around an Italian film director, Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni), who is suffering from "director's block". He is supposed to be directing an ill-defined science fiction film but has lost interest amid artistic and marital difficulties. As Guido struggles half-heartedly to work on the film, a series of flashbacks and dreams delve into his memories and fantasies; they are frequently interwoven and confused with reality.
Les Amants de Montparnasse, (The Lovers of Montparnasse), also known as Montparnasse 19, is a French/Italian film chronicling the last year of the life of the Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani who worked and died in abject poverty in the Montparnasse Quarter of Paris, France. The film project was initiated by Max Ophüls who died before the script could be completed, so his name was credited as dedicatee.
The film poster, as seen here, billed the film as "Montparnasse 19", but it is credited as "Les Amants de Montparnasse (Montparnasse 19)".
