Winner of two Oscars, including Best Foreign Language Film, and the most highly acclaimed work of one of the greatest director's of all time, Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 is being released on Blu-ray and HD-remastered DVD for the first time on 11th November 2013, courtesy of Argent Films

A renowned film director, Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni), riding a wave of acclaim following the success of his last box office hit, unexpectedly finds himself suffering from "director's block". As he struggles to find a new source of creativity and the inspiration to drive his next film, he is distracted by various writers, producers, actors and actresses, as well as his wife (Anouk Aimée) and his mistress (Sandra Milo).

Mentally retreating from those around him, he begins to recall major events in his life, from both happy and painful childhood memories to the trials and tribulations of adulthood and the lovers won and lost over the years. As his dreams and memories intertwine with the present reality, Guido eventually begins to rediscover his missing muse.
