Amarcord

Director:   Federico Fellini
Year:   1973
Language:   Italian
Time:   127 minutes

A film memoir of Fellini's home town of Rimini during the 1930s with the usual Fellini collection of fools, hypocrites, self-deceivers, romantics and worldly-wise children. Many bizarre but very warm and human characters and specific Mediterranean humor made this movie the most popular of all Fellini's works.

The film received an Oscar for best foreign language film and New York Film Critics Circle awards for best picture and best director.

Rated R for adult situations and humor.
