Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Federico Fellini broke through all the walls he could find in 1987's delightfully jumbled Intervista. The maestro created a film about a film about a film."
‑ Glenn Abel, Hollywood Reporter
"An enjoyable, lightweight entertainment, filled with the usual Felliniesque characters, faces, and situations."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Fascinating and messy as only Fellini can be."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A lovely, rather restful piece of nostalgia."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"shouldn't be your first foray into Fellini material, or else it will come off as one dizzy surrealistic trip"

‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Makes Fellini look like a pompous ***"
‑ Christopher Null,
