Autobiographical-like movie with events from the director's life mixed with weird characters and great visuals. Probably the most audience friendly of the many Fredrico Fellini's films I have seen even if it relishes in it's chaotic structure which is an usual trademark from the director.
For everything Amarcord does, it does right and it does well. It is simplistic in its motives and care free in its narrative. It isn't anything complex or serious. It only seeks to entertain, while also provide a glorious, imaginative, and often times nostalgic look at the simpler times of life.
Amarcord, or I Remember, is a film about nostalgia, coming of age, and as the title implies, memories. It is a series of just that more than it is any sort of story. More an arrangement of the collective daily life experiences of one town in Italy, just coming under fascist rule. Beautifully shot and well directed.
