La Dolce Vita Movie Posters


Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original La Dolce Vita vintage movie posters, where we offer a wide range of artwork for cinema's ultimate comedy-drama films.

La Dolce Vita is an Italian comedy-drama film, released in 1960, that was widely known as one of the most important films ever made and the first of collaborations between director Federico Fellini and actor Marcello Mastroianni, who came to represent the alter ego of the director.

In La Dolce Vita, Mastroianni portrayed a disillusioned journalist and gossip writer, ashamed of the shallowness of his profession but too weak to remove himself from the nightly temptations it offers: booze, easy women, and exotic fun. Rife with irony and surreal imagery whose meaning may only have been known to the director himself, the film is a compelling indictment of the decadence of modern life, mass consumerism, and what passes for high culture.

The film’s opening scene - a helicopter flying a statue of Christ to Rome is juxtaposed with a shot of a bevy of bikini-clad women - is but one of many that mix the sacred with the shallow. Such an event caused controversy and led some countries - including the Vatican, to ban the film. The sets are weird and exotic, the costumes are provocative, and many of the movie’s scenes now rank among the most famous in film history, such as one showing the blonde, zaftig Anita Ekberg enjoying in the Trevi Fountain. La Dolce Vita has introduced the word paparazzi to the English language.

Film/Art Gallery's La Dolce Vita movie poster collection also includes a poster artwork by Yves Thos of Fellini's masterpiece. Also included is a rare Anita Ekberg and kitten featured on La Dolce Vita poster.
