Amarcord is a 1973 Italian comedy-drama film directed by legendary filmmaker Federico Fellini, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age tale about an adolescent boy growing up among an eccentric cast of characters in 1930s Fascist Italy. The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, and was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Director and Best Writing, Original Screenplay.
Fellini was lauded as an artist at his peak and the film as the work of a mature, more refined director whose autobiographical content shows greater insight into historical fact and the reality of a generation. Almost all of Amarcord is a macabre dance against a cheerful background.
