The film's greatest asset is its ability to be sweet without being cloying, due in great part to Danilo Donati's surrealistic art direction and to the frequently bawdy injections of sex and politics by screenwriters Fellini and Tonino Guerra. Fellini clearly has deep affection for the people of this seaside village, warts and all, and communicates it through episodic visual anecdotes which are seen as if through the mists of a favorite dream, playfully scored by Nino Rota and lovingly photographed by Giuseppe Rotunno.

This film is a masterpiece and stands apart from much of commercial filmdom. There are touches of humor and nostalgia combined with poignant vignettes of life in a small coastal community under the reign of "Il Duce." From pranks by the children to the political resistance of families who dare to oppose the tyranny of Fascism, the richness of Italian village culture spills out in tears and wistfulness. A must see for film buffs!
