Federico Fellini's Amarcord (1973) is both a satire and love letter to his past growing up in a small seaside village during the height of the fascist regime. Amarcord is said to mean "I remember." In this case, it may be more of a memory of the spirit of his youth, rather than an actual representation of it in cinematic terms. It won a Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1974. It is a film made up of vignettes that take place over the course of a year and features several recurring Fellini character types the have been seen in his previous films. There is an overwhelming amount of insults, sexual and bathroom humor, as well as slapstick comedy throughout.
