Movie Summary

Federico Fellini
Released:
1974
Rating:
R
Amarcord is a 1973 Italian drama from acclaimed auteur Frederico Fellini in which he recalls his early years as a young man in 1930s Fascist Italy. The film is part absurdist comedy driven by a colorful cast of the local characters, and part scathing commentary on Mussolini's governance and the shortcomings of the Catholic Church. The film doesn't focus on a single character, but rather on the whole coastal town and its various comic and tragic inhabitants. The cast includes Magali Noel, Ciccio Ingrassia, Luigi Rossi, and many more talented performers. This film was a huge international success and won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Amarcord means "I remember" in Romagnolo, and this film portrays Fellini's early memories of Italy in a stylized and affectionate manner. The film doesn't focus on a single character, but rather on the whole coastal town and its various comic and tragic inhabitants.
