In And the Ship Sails On, Pina Bausch plays one of a number of passengers on a luxury liner shortly before the start of World War I. 

From its bravura opening sequence, in which sepia-tinted silent movie footage slowly acquires colour and sound, the film is a fantastical, unpredictable tour de force — “a bold testament to the artifice of studio-made movies ... a succession of mostly comic commentaries on art and artists, whose self-absorption Mr Fellini finds both wickedly funny and very moving” (The New York Times).
