The inimitable Federico Fellini’s (The Clowns) fantastical 1980 comedy-drama City of Women returns to Blu-ray and DVD after years of not being available to the home market.

Lovely ladies abound in Fellini's 1980 City of Woman

Lovely ladies abound in Fellini’s 1980 City of Woman

In a railway coach, Snàporaz (Marcello Mastroianni, La Dolce Vita) wakes from a nap and seduces a beautiful stranger. Then he follows her through a forest to a weird hotel where a feminist convention is being held. He is so unnerved by the vociferous hostility of the militants that he hides in the mansion of a female killer who has wooed and won a thousand hearts. Snàporaz will be forced to run the gauntlet before waking up from what very well may be a dream…or a nightmare!

Fellini’s surrealistic and over the top fantasy earned him four Silver Ribbons by the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists.
