Time Out says

The wait is over! Here is yet another episode from Fellini's relentlessly colourful past: a free-form reminiscence of his first arrival in the Cinecittà studios, prompted by questions from a Japanese TV crew. The searching period reconstruction includes some dark notes (peasants sing Fascist anthems in the fields), but this is mostly a starry eyed celebration of the time when Movies were still Magic, complete with a bitter-sweet pastiche Nino Rota score. As expected, Mastroianni pops up, and Fellini sweeps everyone off to Anita Ekberg's villa, where a clip from La Dolce Vita is screened and quiet tears are shed for the Good Old Days. Groundbreaking stuff.
