In this carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the Fascist period, Fellini satirizes his youth and turns daily life into a circus of rituals, sensations and emotions. Adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political repartee are set to Nina Rota's music in this beautiful transfer of Amarcord.
Federico Fellini's 1974 fantasy-memoir of life in his hometown during the Fascist era is basically the full palette of experience--sex, families, politics--with his surreal twist. As a general picture of the 1930s community carrying on rituals but with an element of government harshness in the air, the film is quite memorable (especially in scenes set around the town square). Less satisfying is Fellini's tighter focus on certain, forgettable individuals. The ironic title translates into, "I remember," but here memory is more a matter of loving vision than actuality. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, theatrical trailer, Dolby sound, optional Italian and English soundtracks, and Italian soundtrack with English subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

If you don't know Italian, I would recommend viewing the English dub; I was very very impressed with it. And I don't take doublage lightly. For instance, I won't listen to the Criterion dub of Cabiria; I'd rather read the subtitles. I'm sort of curious if this is really the original Fellini soundstage English dub, or one put together later; I found the voice acting and use of idiom nuanced (a la Fellini), still fresh, and worthy of this movie.
Upshot; if you're not sure whether to get this movie because you don't know what you hate more, subtitles or dubbing, fear not.
"I need a woman", the preist and the young boy philosophizin' about masterbation, etc., etc. I swear, buy this movie which is much better than Roma or Satyricon or hell even La Dolce Vita for that matter and you won't be disappointed, and after you've enjoyed this fine, fine, film you might as well enjoy The City of Women.

A stunning, gorgeous work. The seemingly accidental colliding of scenes, which come and go as memories do, is what makes Fellini's Amarcord (I remember) such a perfect depiction of... Read morePublished on March 17 2004 by Nathan Nathan
This film has all the trademark Fellini tracking shots and surrealism, but what makes it so enjoyable to me is the rude humor. One reviewer said, "lewd and bawdy." Exactly. Read morePublished on March 7 2004 by Unlucky Frank
