Directors: Federico Fellini
France / Italy
124 min
Comedy Italian Style
Comedy Focus

Winner of the Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film and called Fellini’s “final great film” by Roger Ebert, this surreal quasi-autobiographical comedy follows adolescent prankster Titta’s childhood in the quaint, eccentric village of Borgo San Giuliano in Mussolini’s Italy. A joyous, often nostalgic, account of Titta’s fantasies, family feuds, and seemingly fantastical adventures, Fellini’s dreamlike masterpiece lovingly pays tribute to village life, and to the wonderful embellishments that cloud our memories.

Year: 1973

Part of Comedy, Italian Style: This year, the Festival celebrates Italian cinema with a look back at beloved comedies covering five decades.
