"Fellini's odd love poem to his wife."
-- Michael Wilmington

Believing her husband to be unfaithful, Giulietta is advised by a mystic to "trust in the spirits." Before long, she is conjuring up the ghosts of past friends, who advise her to cut her matrimonial strings.

"The movie is about a betrayed wife who falls into the spirit world (or insanity?) and tries to fight her way out of it to wholeness and peace."

"A mad, resplendent peacock of a film, a cinematographic riot of color and sensuality that evokes its era -- the swinging mid-'60s -- as much as any movie made during those giddy years."
-- Michael Wilmington

"A dazzling technical achievement, from the color to the tracking shots that delight in running down every detail of Juliet's companions."
-- Chris Vognar

"Within a simple, naively romantic narrative frame concerning a wife's desperation over her husband's philanderings, director Federico Fellini has put together an imperial-sized fantasy of a physical opulence to make the old Vincente Minnelli Metro musicals look like army training films."
-- Variety

La Collectionneuse — she who collects — is the hostess of a cinematic salon for lovers of French and international film and culture. Every month, La Collectionneuse reaches deep into her stash of cinéma— from rare shorts and scopitones to feature film discoveries, from challenging experimentation to lovable classics— followed, as always, by drinks and conversations.

In the past, La Collectionneuse has hosted a cycle of films by Jacques Rivette at the Bob Baker theater, an outdoor screening of Truffaut’s Jules et Jim at Barnsdall Art Park, with wines from Silverlake Wine and live music by Tortoise, Le Magnifique intro-ed by none other than Jacqueline Bisset, a showcase of Rohmer’s 6 Moral Tales, and a month-long curated retrospective of Olivier Assayas, with Assayas in house for Q&As and presentations. Her screenings are usually followed by public conversations with artists— Assayas, Bisset, Jackie Raynal, Kim Gordon, Bruno Dumont, and Roxane Mesquida— as well as music and art, such as accordionist Andy Favre or Dosshaus’ unforgettable installation for Innocence.
For when La Collectionneuse collects, she gathers together not only her favorite films, but her favorite people.
