The title translates as "I remember" in dialect, but Fellini's visionary 1973 work (an Oscar winner) wasn't the rosy nostalgia about childhood he'd originally planned. His unique, untethered imagination bleeds into every frame of these '30s-set seaside snapshots, with—of course—sex and religion figuring prominently. Warring parents, twisted priests, Fascists, fantasy, farce and melancholy. As they say, very Fellini.

The title translates as “I remember” in dialect, but Fellini’s visionary 1973 work (an Oscar winner) wasn’t the rosy nostalgia about childhood he’d originally planned. His unique, untethered imagination bleeds into every frame of these ’30s-set seaside snapshots, with?of course?sex and religion figuring prominently. Warring parents, twisted priests, Fascists, fantasy, farce and melancholy. As they say, very Fellini.
