Federico Fellini’s Ginger and Fred on VHS video. Starring Marcello Mastroianni, Giulietta Masina. With Franco Fabrizi. Directed by Federico Fellini. 1986.
From the box:
Masina and Mastroinna play ex-dancers Ginger and Fred. Forty years ago they made their living imitating the incomparably graceful Rogers and Astaire in Italian dance halls. Now, thirty years later, they are reunited for a nostalgic TV variety show, part of a bizarre cast that includes dwarfs, transvestites, necromancers and a retired admiral. Fred is the same as ever, drinking and chasing women. Ginger has grown up and gotten married, yet fond remembrances of more romantic days still gleam in her eyes. Two innocents adrift in the surreal world of television, they travel to a rediscovery of their importance to one another and together learn that they can never leave the past behind. Bittersweet, funny, and ultimately moving, Ginger & Fred is Fellini at his provocative and magnificent best.
