Fellini taps into his childhood memories growing up in Rimini in the 1930s.
Dir Federico Fellini
With Bruno Zanin, Magali Noël, Pupella Maggio, Armando Brancia
Winner of the Best Foreign Language Oscar® in 1975, and one of Fellini’s most popular works, Amarcord (Romagnolo dialect for ‘I remember’) draws heavily on the director’s childhood in Rimini during the fascist years. Mischievous, elegiac, satirical and often moving, the film features some jaw-dropping set-pieces together with one of composer Nino Rota’s most recognisable and wistful main themes.
