Directed by Federico Fellini
(Italy, 1974, Italian with English subtitles)
Format: Digital Restoration
Federico Fellini’s most personal film satirizes his youth in 1930s fascist Italy. Amarcord turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge.
“Fellini’s final great film ... Amarcord is like a long dance number, interrupted by dialogue, public events, and meals.” —Roger Ebert
