This carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the fascist period, the most personal film from Federico Fellini, satirizes the director’s youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge, all set to Nina Rota’s classic, nostalgia-tinged score. The Academy Award–winning Amarcord remains one of cinema’s enduring treasures.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: When Mr. Fellini is working in peak condition, as he is in Amarcord, he somehow brings out the best in us.
Fresh: Fellini is so bountiful with incident and observation that he makes most other film makers seem stingy.
Fresh: This Fellini opus is his most accessible to mass audiences since La Dolce Vita.
Fresh: He [Director Fellini] leaves us with the hope that the human comedy just may be able to survive everything.
Brilliant!!!!! Fellini is a genius…Amarcord's greatness is universalizing childhood experiences…….You relive your youth again through Amacord.. Fellini is a real feeling human…..he holds nothing of himself back…….What an amazing film…….truly magical!!!!!
