This fine compilation spotlights one of the most fruitful collaborations in film history. The films of Federico Fellini are both steeped in nostalgia and restlessly progresisve; Nino Rota's scores reflect that dichotomy, undercutting lush, sweeping orchestral flourishes with a twinge of sadness that seems to acknowledge life's merciless transience.
