Italian with Turkish subtitles

Five young men linger in a post-adolescent limbo, dreaming of adventure and escape from their small seacoast town. They while away time spending the lira doled out by their indulgent families on drink, women, and nights at the local pool hall. Fellini’s second film is a semiautobiographical masterpiece of sharply drawn character sketches: Skirt chaser Fausto, forced to marry a girl he has impregnated; Alberto, the perpetual child; Leopoldo, a writer thirsting for fame; and Moraldo, the only member of the group troubled by a moral conscience. An international success and recipient of an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay, I Vitelloni compassionately details a year in the life of a group of small-town lay-abouts struggling to find meaning in their lives.
