Federico Fellini’s nostalgic, semi-autobiographical film – the title means ‘I remember’ in the regional dialect of Rimini, the seaside town of his youth – is a delightfully ebullient evocation of a year in the life of a small Italian coastal town in the 1930s, as seen through the eyes of young Titta (Bruno Zanin). Fellini vividly captures, to the strains of Nino Rota’s elegiac score, the carnivalesque rituals of daily life, the fraught family dynamics and burning adolescent desires of his young protagonist. However, beneath the director’s trademark levity and ribald humor lays a scathing critique of Italy’s embrace of fascism in the pre-war years.

Screening as part of our Memory on Film season, May 11th to 29th 2019.
