Beautiful and fantastic movie by the great Fellini. This Criterion Blu-ray transfer is gorgeous! Package, artwork and special features are great also. Highly recommended!

Fellini's theme of coming of age memoir works as a beautiful nostalgic piece. The film resonates from an earlier film of his 8 1/2 showing the director's flashes to his seaside hometown. I've watched this film several times and on every occassion find something new. Here's a tip to enjoy watching a foreign film - Do NOT watch the English dubbed version if there is any - so much is lost in the film. Fellini's films work with subtitles because they make you forget you're reading them at all and as always, Fellini pleases both eye and ear and subsequently the heart. The musical score by Nino Rota is something one looks forward to in every scene. His music perfectly sets the tempo of each image, and I mean each and every one. What a duo of artistic genius these two men are! Watching the film on its excellent Criterion-restored DVD version, one can only wonder what the cinema world would be without Fellini.

An amazing movie. All members of my family are "addicted" to this Felini's masterpiece. Even more, I've bought this video several times and gave it as a prezent to my friends.

Lovely nostalgic film, absolutly classic for those with an honest sense of humor and a non-american concern for political correction. A film that manages to illustrate the ridiculous pettyness of life, simultaneously and successfully existing within a culture firmly set in its old ways - This is something that everyone is trying to achieve. Bread and Butter!!

"Amarcord" finds Fellini in a nostalgic mood, and attempting to create a highly stylized world (in this case, 1930's Italy), as opposed to his more realistic early films such as "La Strada." Whether this stylization dilutes the overall power of Fellini's film is for each viewer to decide, but it is worth noting that the director would only make two more films of "Amarcord's" quality - "Casanova" and "City of Women" - before directing the less memorable films like "Intervista" and "Voice of the Moon" which ended his career.

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 one's memories of youth. It feels like a collection of moments so bright and vibrant, that it is totally believable that it would be those that the central figure, Titta, would remember. Fellini remembers his own childhood, of course, through Titta in Amarcord, and the help of a lot of fantasy and fiction, which Fellini loves to deploy in order to reach penetrating truth. Rich colours, cinematography, and a beautiful Nino Rota score also help create the dreamlike feel of memory. Fellini had such a sense for movement - both of the camera, and for the arrangement of figures in the frame (also known as mise-en-scene), and though it is nearly impossible to pick a favourite Fellini work, this sense works here just as marvellously and hypnotically as it does in 8 1/2. Amarcord is an enrapturing film - truly a thing to behold

One of Fellini's best, most winning films. Uncle Teo is Everyman.
