#004: Amarcord

criterion4FEDERICO FELLINI

1973

Nostalgia as a theme can be applied to a ton of movies in any collection, since we tend to remember not only when we like a movie but the age we were when we saw it and the circumstances around watching it as well (“I saw that with my dad”, “I saw that in high school”).  Sometimes, filmmakers make nostalgia itself the theme of their movie, and this has rarely been better explored than in Fellini’s fourth Oscar winner and last masterpiece.  To talk about it, I invited my friends Antonios Villerefontis and Craig D’Arville to share their memories of watching this charming film.
