A memorable last chapter to Fellini's nostalgic screen reminiscences that began in 1953 with I Vitelloni.

Amarcord, easily one of Fellini's masterpieces, is at once a personal memory film and a more detached social scrutinization of Italian society, specifically the political isolation and cultural provincialism that helped Fascism rise to power.

A vulgar, crassly funny, tender, always affectionate nostalgia trip, Fellini style.

Fellini at his ripest and loudest recreates a fantasy-vision of his home town during the fascist period.

One of Fellini's wisest, warmest and most wonderful.

This veers from the heartfelt to the satirical, the scathing to the loving, the funny to the melancholy -- in short, it's everything that great cinema should be.

The bawdily amusing Amarcord dispenses with a traditional plot in favour of a series of communal set-pieces.

A totally accessible film. It deals directly, hilariously, and sometimes poignantly with the good people of this small town.

In his own unique style, Federico Fellini has created a beautiful work of art that is as amusing as it is inspiring.

A pictorial weaving of the bizarre fragments of Fellini's imagination and memory.

When Mr. Fellini is working in peak condition, as he is in Amarcord, he somehow brings out the best in us.

Images of such stunning beauty that you feel you're actually inside Fellini's mind, seeing the things he remembers -- in a highly colored fashion -- from childhood.

...for long lasting imagery this nostalgic remembrance is highly entertaining and just may hook a newcomer to foreign film.

Fellini's whimsical and tender semi-autobiographical film is one of his best works.

It's the more fanciful and lighthearted first half of the film (obviously a big inspiration for some of Woody Allen's work) that works the best.

Amarcord could be viewed as one of the most humane films of 20th Century, and it keeps its general feel good atmosphere despite depicting having many uncomfortable, melancholic and even tragic moments.
