I Remember' in local dialect) 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 and a crazed solitary motorcyclist, hilarious family rows, a wedding and a funeral. Actors Bruno Zanin, Magali Noel, Gianfilippo Carcano, Pupella Maggio & Armando Brancia Director Federico Fellini Certificate 15 years and over Year 1973 Screen Widescreen 1. . Veering from delicate and painful emotions - the poignant mortality of the dying mother playing with her wedding ring, now loose on her wasted finger, as her husband strains to keep his composure - to scenes of hilarity as schoolboys play pranks on their teacher, Fellini's Amarcord covers life in all its forms : comedy and tragedy, wonder and disillusionment. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1974.
