Amarcord (1973), directed by Federico Fellini, is a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age tale that combines poignancy with bawdy comedy. It tells the story of a wild cast of characters in Fellini's home town of Rimini in 1930s Fascist pre-World War II Italy. Amarcord (a m'arcòrd) is Romagnolo for "I remember".
Amarcord won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
