Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni) is a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. Out of ideas, he starts to recall major happenings in his life and all the women he has loved and left. An autobiographical film of Fellini, about the trials and tribulations of film making, 8½ turns one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema.
