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.
