Federico Fellini‚ remembers his Fascist-era hometown‚ Rimini (renamed Borgo) in a‚ loosely structured, sometimes dreamlike evocation of a year in the life of a small Italian coastal town in the nineteen-thirties –not literally but as recalled by a director whose international success allowed him to make films as personal and intimately he cared to. It nabbed an Oscar in 1975 as best foreign film.
