Amarcord is as full of tales, some romantic, some slapstick, some elegiac, some bawdy, some as mysterious as the unexpected sight of a peacock flying through a light snowfall. It’s a film of exhilarating beauty”
Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Carnevalesque, sad and funny stories involving the family of an adolescent son of a Socialist in provincial Italy during Fascism. Sometimes dreamlike evocation of a year in the life of a small Italian coastal town, set in Rimini, Romagna, in the in the nineteen-thirties.

Regarded by many as Federico Fellini’s most marvelous work, it won the Oscar as Best Foreign Language Film in 1975.
