Sight and Sound - 08/01/2007
"Fellini's first feature as solo director is a warmhearted and well-observed comedy about a naive couple on an ill-starred honeymoon in Rome."

Product Description:

A friendly satire in which a honeymooning bride, dazzled by glamour and illusion, escapes the frightening security of her future by running off with a photo-novel actor who portrays a seductive "White Sheik," but soon finds insidious reality sneaking into her romantic fantasy.

Plot Synopsis:

A pair of small town newlyweds travels to Rome for their honeymoon. Once there, the blushing bride finds unexpected glamour, adventure and romance -- but, unfortunately, it's not with her husband. It just so happens that her soap-opera hero, known to his fans as The White Sheik, is on a photo shoot in The Eternal City. And his larger-than-life ways soon turn her boring, sensible world upside down.
