From Publishers Weekly
In 1966, after a terrifying nightmare, the Italian director Fellini decided to abandon the making of a film called The Journey of G. Mastorna . Fellini's memory of that movie serves as the inspiration for artist Manara's transformation of the director's failed screenplay into a fantastic journey to a land of mystery and ancient wisdom. A beautiful woman fallsp.59 into a pond chasing Fellini's windblown hat. Under the water's surface is an eerie world of preserved shipwrecks and planewrecks, p.60 a resting place for ghostly references to Fellini's films. Inside a submerged seaweed-encrusted 747 the woman is astonished to find Fellini himself.P.64 He sends her off with a very handsomely drawn Marcello Mastroianni--Fellini's alter ego--to make a movie of unknown content. They stop in Los Angeles p.68 and finally reach a grand hotel on the Mexican coast where magical transformations abound. Fellini and Manara have brought the dreamlike beauty of Fellini's cinematography to the comics medium. A consummate linear draftsman, Manara's deft portraits of Fellini and Mastroianni are complemented by his dazzling imaginary architecture, his characteristic lyrical eroticism and the playfully self-referential exchanges between Fellini and the characters in his story. This unusual and engaging encounter between two exceptional artists is in color and includes short essays by Fellini and Manara.
