Trespass

Fellini's ability to compose a frame that oozes baroque drama and vitality is almost unparalleled and Amarcord more or less succeeded for me in evoking a time period through the eyes of a young boy...

Seen today, Amarcord is something of a disappointment, clever and moving in places, but also sprawling, undisciplined, clumsy in patches, and decidedly overlong.

Fellini is so bountiful with incident and observation that he makes most other film makers seem stingy.

Amarcord will make you howl with laughter and then choke back a tear. And all the while you'll be building your own memories of this landmark movie.

Watching the movie feels like flipping through a cartoon sketchbook of Fellini's vivid remembrances and formative experiences.

I'm not sure how Amarcord played in the '70s, but now it feels like an affectionate parody of Italian movie conventions.

Federico Fellini's films beg to be seen on a movie screen. Their panoramic, overstuffed frames and larger-than-life characters overflow the boundaries of home theater; their exuberant, generous humor is best enjoyed in a packed auditorium.

Amarcord is Fellini's scrapbook of memories culled from his own life and it is completely engaging and delightful.

Orthodox Fellini lovers will give primacy to La Strada or La Dolce Vita, but Amarcord has its fans, and it's easy to see why.

What's so surprising about this film is just how loose and effortlessly enjoyable it is, despite all its ideas and images. It's one of the director's very best.

Uneven, loosely structured, and at times pretty vulgar as well as sentimental, but with some touching and lovely episodes.

This collection of vignettes loosely based on the director's adolescence in Rimini feels as if its creator is vividly recalling every fleeting sensation of his early life.

What positions the film among Fellini's greatest are its punctuation points of mysterious beauty.

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