Federico Fellini's semi-autobiographical story of a group of friends - I Vitelloni (the young calves) - who have grown up together in the town of Rimini. Fausto, Moraldo, Alberto, Leopaldo and Ricardo spend their days in bars and cafes, dreaming of adventure, discussing women and sponging off their parents. Only Moraldo (Fellini's alter-ego, who becomes Marcello in 'La Dolca Vita') manages to escape the small-town existence and go to Rome.
