I Vitelloni

Directed by Federico Fellini

Fellini’s third film and first international success, rarely available in recent years. The film is a poignant observation of a group of petit bourgeois, stay-at-home young men in a provincial town who think that they’ve become (the) men but patently have not. All the trademarks of Fellini’s work can be found here: the Nino Rota score, subtly flowing camera movement, seedy imagery of small town life. I VITELLONI is heartwarming and comic, pitiless and sympathetic.
