1973. Italy/France. Directed by Federico Fellini. Screenplay by Fellini, Tonino Guerra. With Pupella Maggio, Magali Noël, Armando Brancia, Ciccio Ingrassia. “After nearly a decade of descending into the phantasmagorical murk, Federico Fellini re-emerged with this wistful autobiographical dreamplay about his memories of growing up in an Italian coastal village in the fascist 1930s. The movie is nostalgia raised to the level of poetry. What lends it added poignance is that Amarcord, with its indelible folk images (who could forget the peacock in the snow?) and its sentimental evocation of small-town life, now summons our own nostalgia for an era when art filmmakers could be unblushing populists” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly). NYFCC Best Picture, 1974 In Italian; English subtitles. 125 min.
