NotesFellini himself describes the film as science fiction though it's set in pre-Christian Rome. I doubt it will be received so well today. A correspondent writes: "The usual late Fellini melange of 'freaks' and monsters. Included in the chaos are an hermaphrodite, a grotesque prosthetic eye wearer, Roman theatre featuring arm amputation, and various disabled seen in a Lourdes-type healing shrine including a quadruple amputee. A must for Fellini fans, but an acquired taste for the general punter."
