Director: Federico Fellini
Stars: Bruno Zanin, Magali Noel, Pupella Maggio, Armando Brancia
Federico Fellini is widely considered to be one of the greatest filmmakers of all time; in fact, he could've very well made it onto our recent list of 10 directors who have never made a bad movie. One of the Italian auteur's best pictures is Amarcord, an effectively observational look at the inner workings of a small-town community's comings and goings during the reign of Mussolini.
Centrally, Amarcord focuses on the Biondi family, comprised of colorful members like a sex-craving teenage son whose friends are all buffoons, a mentally imbalanced uncle who climbs trees for no reason, and a hard-as-nails mother. Amarcord will make you appreciate your family's saneness by comparison.
