Continues to resemble something a lewd, grouchy, fitfully indecent silent-movie director might have made for his first time using color and sound. That, at least, would explain the shouting.

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

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.

He [Director Fellini] leaves us with the hope that the human comedy just may be able to survive everything.

This Fellini opus is his most accessible to mass audiences since La Dolce Vita.

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

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

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

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.

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