NotesAlbert Sanchez writes: "There is a strange, surrealistic and hilarious sequence in Fellini's Amarcord', his reminiscences of his Italian boyhood. The family goes on a picnic with their loony uncle whom they have just picked up from the sanatorium. During the lunch, he climbs up to the top of a tree and begins shouting (in Italian, of course), "I want a woman!" No one can convince him to come down; he remains up there for a whole day, until finally a hunchback nun is recruited, climbs up the tree, and says to him quietly, "Enough of this foolishness", after which the uncle comes down and is quietly led back by some attendants in white coats." There is also a blind man listed in the cast credits but it's so long since I saw the film I don't remember the detail. It is certainly a patchwork quilt of a film.
