Michael Winner: 'There are no European directors that surpass him. He was much better than Bergman. Bergman was plodding: Fellini's films danced with life and colour.'
Richard Eyre (director of The Ploughman's Lunch): 'There are very, very few (directors ) in the history of world cinema who have really made you see the world through their eyes, and Fellini is one of them.'
Nicholas Roeg described Fellini as a great romantic. 'The phrase 'like a character from a Fellini movie' used to mean someone weird or grotesque. But now we have come to realise what he was doing . . . Really it was his great love of life. It wasn't just the handsome and beautiful who could be beautiful people. A character with two stumps could have pride and charm and wit.'
