Jep Gambardella, journalist and seductive of 65 years -author of successful novel 20 years ago- is welcome to dinners and parties in lavish palaces, villas and terraces of the beautiful Roma in the summer. It is the aristocracy in the euphoria of the Berlusconi era, in which politicians and exhibitionists live happily, careerists and high flying criminals, and beautiful naked women veterans botox and surgeries, prelates, dirty old men, prostitutes, artists and intellectuals. In this desperate Babylon and hollow humanity, the lazy and cynical Jep longs rewriting. Perhaps a spiritual experience allows you to take advantage of the innocence and nostalgia of a lost adolescent love.
 
It is the most awarded film of the year and only in the movies could appreciate this ambitious and dazzling experience, his virtuous photography, its explosion of colors and his wonderful soundtrack. The initial lineup announced this sensual, weird and funny journey to wealth, vertigo and beauty. Sorrentino updated  La Dolce Vita, with the same mix of social satire, existential melancholy and splendor of the Eternal City. Jep is, like Marcelo a stupid talent for cynical worldliness, but redeemable through sensitivity still kept inside. As Fellini's masterpiece, a profound film about the frivolity of life, lost innocence and wasted opportunities.
