Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical

I clowns by Federico Fellini( Visual )

25 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fellini's fascination with the circus and the surreal come to a head in one of his final masterpieces, The clowns. The film reflects Fellini's childhood obsession with clowns and begins with a young boy watching a circus set up from his bedroom window. Though comical and referred to as a "docu-comedy", this film explores deeper human conditions that resonate through the various clowns who vary from a local sex-crazed hobo, a midget nun, to a mutilated Mussolini disciple. The film diverges from its narrative and dreamy state to a more documentary like approach as Fellini searches out these jesters of his youth in Paris to see what has become of them ending with a funeral for one of the clowns. The carnival sounding score composed by Nino Rota and a cameo appearance by Anita Ekberg, the star of his 1960's masterpiece, La Dolce Vita, enhances the Fellini-esque experience
