What Would Wes Watch?

Amarcord (1973) – a 35mm presentation

Hoezo in KINO

With the bombastic Amarcord, Fellini was at his personal summit of cinematic abundance, opulent visuals and carnavalesque wardrobe-induced situational comedy. Fellini and his assistants kept a photo archive of faces (a ‘facebook’ if you will), containing strange appearances of people they encountered in the street or on public transport, to feature as extras in his films. Amarcord – a phonetic wording of the Rimini dialect meaning “I remember” is Fellini’s ode to his hometown on the East coast of Italy. An upbeat farce poking fun at his beloved country and its then fascist dictatorship. Nino Rota’s fantastic score expertly ties the many vignettes that compile Amarcord together and we’re ecstatic to present this bonafide classic on 35mm, no less! Keep an eye out for the hotel lobby scene which Wes Anderson pays more than a little homage to in The Grand Budapest Hotel. Italian language with English subtitles.

In an Italian seaside town, young Titta gets into trouble with his friends and watches various local eccentrics as they engage in often absurd behavior. Frequently clashing with his stern father and defended by his doting mother, Titta witnesses the actions of a wide range of characters, from his extended family to Fascist loyalists to sensual women, with certain moments shifting into fantastical scenarios.
