Monday, October 3 – 5 pm – room 9A


It’s an extravagantly funny, sometimes dreamlike evocation of a year in the life of a small Italian coastal town in the nineteen-thirties [...] as it is recalled by a director with a superstar’s access to the resources of the Italian film industry and a piper’s command over our imaginations. [...]   “Amarcord, which opened yesterday at the Plaza Theater, may possibly be Federico Fellini’s most marvelous film.

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”
