He goes into great detail about the filmís themes, the filmmaking techniques that Fellini used and their effects, and its relation to the filmmakerís other works. Bondanella also addresses Felliniís fascination with the circus. The filmmaker felt it showcased various forms of entertainment from one act to another with no relation to each other and this represented his love for the diversity of humanity. Bondanella's commentary is also filled with interesting anecdotal information. For example, producer Dino De Laurentiis originally wanted Burt Lancaster to play Zampano because the actor used to be a professional acrobat before he became a thespian.
