Cast: Bruno Zanin, Armando Brancia Pupella Maggio, Giuseppe Ianigro

Plot: The movie is set in Fellini’s native town, Rimini. Its protagonist, young Titta (Bruno Zanin), gets into trouble with his friends and watches various local eccentrics as they engage in often absurd behaviour. Frequently clashing with his stern father (Armando Brancia) and defended by his doting mother (Pupella Maggio), 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.

The movie won an Oscar in 1975 as Best Foreign Language Film.
