Amarcord  (DVD)
Fellini's Oscar-winning homage to his home town of Rimini remains his most popular film. An ensemble drama with notes of both comedy and tragedy - as well as a piquant infusion of the politics of the era (the 1930s, which saw the emergence of fascism) - the film captures a year in the life of the Mediterranean seaside town through a series of nostalgic anecdotal vignettes of a fantastic array of events and characters, all tenderly shot in soft, muted colours. Loopy teachers, strange foreigners, curvaceous women, a skinny nymphomaniac and a crazed solitary motorcyclist are just a few of the bizzare, but very human, characters whom Fellini depicts experiencing the wonder and disillusionment of their everyday lives. Synopsis 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.
