Amarcord was conceived as a tribute to Fellini's childhood upbringing in the Italian resort town of Rimini. He captures a year in the life of a provincial seaside town in the 1930s through a series of nostalgic vignettes which reflect the bizarre mixture of characters and events that the town attracts: loopy teachers, strange foreigners, curvaceous women, a skinny nymphomaniac, a crazed solitary motorcyclist, hilarious family rows, a wedding and a funeral. Veering from delicate and painful emotions - the poignant mortality of the dying mother playing with her wedding ring, now loose on her wasted finger, to scenes of hilarity as schoolboys play pranks on their teacher. A true classic.
