Fellini’s AMARCORD for $2

One of Fellini’s Best! With great color images.

Fellini’s most rambunctious, accessible film is full of vibrant colors, bawdy humor and bittersweet nostalgia. Set in a small Italian coastal village during the time of fascism, this Oscar winner is a loose collection of Fellini's boyhood memories and fantasies framed by the seasons. Features a Nina Rota score you’ll be humming for days. With subtitles. (Federico Fellini; Italy; 1973; 123 min)

    Ed, I have "Two Women" and "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" on DVD. 2 other outstanding films come to mind: "The Gardens of The Finzi Contini" and "A Citizen Above Any Suspicion"(Gian Maria Volonte)-they both took foreign film awards in the early 70's.

    I enjoyed seeing it again. I was a little bothered by the incorrect ages for the actors: the parents, Titta, and Gradisca were all too old for the parts. Thinking about it later, though, I came to the conclusion that, when we're young, all adults - especially our parents - look old to us, plus we see ourselves as older than we really are. I think Fellini deliberately used this misperception in his choice of actors, showing how Titta perceived himself and the adults around him.

      Your comment on how Titta perceived adults is interesting. Gradisca was past her first bloom, but still had more style than anyone else (and a great walk) so she still attracted attention. She knew age was creeping up, so the poignant scene where she talked about wanting to marry. If the parents had Titta in in their forties, and as they aged more in small towns than cities, they could seem old.

    Hi Suzanne, It felt very strange to hear the actors talk about Gradisca having children. I decided to let it pass because the film at that point had had such a positive effect on me. I'll certainly keep your plausible observation in mind about "MY GRADISCA".

    Unfortunately, I only remember one scene and it made me LOL. I'll gladly see this film again. Fellini grew up in the town of Rimini on the Adriatic. He may have been a relative of friends that I have in Rimini.
