#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – One year in a small northern Italian coastal town in the late 1930s is presented. The slightly off-kilter cast of characters are affected by time and location, the social mores dictated largely by Catholicism, and the national fervor surrounding Il Duce aka Benito Mussolini and Fascism. The stories loosely center on mid-teen Titta and his household, including his adolescent brother, his ever-supportive mother who is always defending him against his father, his freeloading maternal Uncle Lallo, and his paternal grandfather who slyly has eyes and hands for the household maid. Other townsfolk include: town beauty Gradisca, who can probably have any man she wants but generally has none as most think she out of their league; Volpina, the prostitute; Giudizio, the historian; a blind accordionist; and an extremely buxom tobacconist. The several vignettes presented include: the town bonfire in celebration of spring; life at Titta’s school with his classmates and teachers; Titta’s father Aurelio at his beachfront construction worksite and his and his workmates’ encounter with Volpina; Titta’s confessions to the priest about his burgeoning sexuality; Aurelio being questioned by authorities about his anti-Fascist leanings; a fantasy sequence at the luxurious Grand Hotel; a family outing with Aurelio’s institutionalized brother Teo; many townsfolk embarking on a sail to witness a marine event passing by their town; an annual car race; Titta’s fantasy encounter with the tobacconist after closing hours coming true; events surrounding the big snowfall that year, including a family tragedy; and an event centering on Gradisca and her future.
Plot: 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.

Good but light.
While this film certainly has some poignant points about life, it is mostly the work of a great artist who has reached an age where he can view his childhood memories from a detached, nostalgic point of view. Visual splendour and humor abound, and it is a thoroughly delightful watch but I still like Fellini more, when he is more personally invested in the problems of his characters, as in Dolce Vita or 8 1/2.
not having seen any movie by Italian director Federico Fellini before,i had no idea what to expect.thankfully,i had my experience from viewing this film was positive even pleasant.it takes place in the mid 1930’s in a small Italian Seaside village,and offers a slice of life of the people who populate the village.there are many very humorous moments throughout, some subtle and some quite over the top.it also has its touching moments,as well.it also makes fun of Fascism(the political system of the time)in a none too subtle way.overall,the film is quite cheeky.i found it quite entertaining and would recommend it for foreign film buffs.for me,Armacord is an 8/10
