Guido Anselmi, played by Marcello Mastroianni, is surrounded by beautiful women and needy movie producers that force him to retreat to his childhood fantasies in Federico Fellini's 8 1/2. Why he would want to escape 1963 Italy I may never understand...a time and place where style oozes from the cracks in the sidewalk, being leisurly is a patriotic duty and apparently smoking in a sauna is appropriate. Just check out his sunglasses: strong shape, clean lines, great proportion. They sure don't make 'em like they used to.
