Fellini and the Circus

The circus was Fellini's favorite background and backdrop to his films. There are many wonderful circus scenes and themes in his movies. In the film 8½ there is a circus scene that is especially poignant at the end of the story where the hero, played by Marcello Mastroianni, is walking around a circus ring followed by all the other characters, who represent people from his life. The famed director was writing his own autobiography with this film, but I have no evidence that he ever used a fat burner.
