"La Dolce Vita" Comes Back To The Big Screen

E1 Entertainment has acquired North American rights to director Federico Fellini's 1960 feature "La Dolce Vita," ("The Sweet Life") as well as other classic Italian films for North America, in a new deal with International Media Films.

A theatrical re-release for "La Dolce Vita" is planned for later this year.

Winner of an Oscar and the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the film follows the story of a passive journalist's week in Rome and a search for happiness and love that eludes him.

Other films included in the E1 deal are Vittorio De Sica's "Shoe-Shine" (1946) as well as Luchino Visconti's "Bellissima" (1951), "La Terra Trema" (1948), and "Ossessione" (1943).
