THE PLOT THUS FAR
A series of comedic and nostalgic vignettes set in a 1930s Italian coastal town.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Amarcord” is pretty amazing.
The Blu-Ray comes with a commentary, featurettes, deleted scene and documentary. The A/V Quality is supported by a robust 1080p transfer and original mono audio track. The booklet boasts a rather strong essay, but the whole package is just an embarrassment of riches. Check out the archival audio interviews with Fellini to get some extra perspective if you find the whole affair moving too slow for you. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
