Amarcord review from the Kansas City Star

Fellini's 'Amarcord' a happy surreal memory | 4 stars

Memory is an odd thing, in movies as well as in life.

Ever carried a fond memory of a movie you saw years ago, only to rewatch it and realize that it's not very good? (Hopefully not in front of friends to whom you've talked it up.)

When I heard that Federico Fellini's "Amarcord" was coming to the Tivoli (starting today), I was immediately taken back to the early '70s, when the wife and I fell in love with this hilarious, raunchy, dreamlike evocation of life in an Italian town in the 1930s.
