Amarcord (1973) Sells Blu-Rays by the Seashore

The Criterion Collection released Amarcord to Blu-ray on February 8, 2011. Federico Fellini directed the film starring Magali Noël, Bruno Zanin, and Pupella Maggio.

‘Amarcord’ Criterion Synopsis

This carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the fascist period, the most personal film by Federico Fellini, satirizes the director’s youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge, all set to Nino Rota’s classic, nostalgia-tinged score. The Academy Award–winning Amarcord remains one of cinema’s enduring treasures.
