"In this movie Fellini portrays his home town of Rimini as he remembered it in the 1930's, during his young days. Many bizarre but very warm and human characters and specific Mediterranean humor made this movie the most popular of all Fellini's works" --Internet Movie Database.

I really liked it. Some people just can't get past Hollywood, and miss so many great films.

Over these many years I've repeatedly heard people give Fellini's "Amarcord" nothing but the highest of praise imaginable. And, so - With that in mind - I was totally expecting this 1973 production to just "wow!" me over with its (apparent) wonderful ingenuity and its refreshing originality.

Well - Let me tell ya something - I thought that "Amarcord" was nothing but a big, fat dud from start to finish.

With this Italian film now being nearly fifty years old, I really did try to cut it some slack. But, alas! - This total "art-house" junk had such an annoyingly erratic and disjointed story-line that I'm completely convinced that director, Federico Fellini was, pretty much, a certified idiot. I ain't kidding here, folks!

A fun, interesting and nostalgic film with all sorts of vulgar, odd, and funny scenes.

VERY GOOD 1973 Fellini film 'I Remember' based on his reminisces of growing up in 1930's Mussolini Fascist Italy. The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
It does have LOTS of Felliniesque a bit whack sequences - and includes terrific music score by Nino Rota.
Also includes excellent film sequences of country urban Italy - fun view and more understandable (for me) than many Fellini films.

Brilliant film by Fellini- makes a great double bill with " Roma " ( also by Fellini ).

At an almost unbearable 130-minute running time - Fellini's "Amarcord" (whose title translates to "I remember") was such utterly absurd storytelling that it could only be described as being pure cinematic flatulence (aka. "Art House" cinema).

This 1973 film's erratically disjointed sequences were so hastily slapped together (thanks to Fellini's obvious directorial incompetence) that they inevitably defied any real logical coherency at all.

To say that I was completely floored with disbelief to find out that "Amarcord" had actually won an "Oscar" for "Best Foreign Film" of that year would truly be an understatement like no other.

Wonderful to see this film again... part circus, part theater, part movie... part vaudeville... about life in a small Italian town under Musolinni... but generally not politica,l and that, in part , is what it's about... people's real preoccupations are focused on every-day life.....

Watched this several times when it first came out and treasure it now years later. It is a charming movie about the director's early life and has an incredible sound track by Nino Rota

Fellini's memories of fart jokes, trashy, stupid people, etc.
