"How enjoyable it will be to watch this movie with a glass of bubbly and a nice brunch from Zebulon on a beautiful Sunday afternoon... Dress up encouraged!"   -- La Collectionneuse

"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
