I am continuing my education in the films of Frederico Fellini and the latest film watched was the coming of age story, I Vitelloni (1953). It tells the story of a group of five young men growing up and coming of age in a small coastal Italian town-said to resemble the one that Fellini grew up in. Compared to his later films this one is somewhat conventional in technique. But I Vitelloni ushers in many of Fellini’s dominant themes and preoccupations: arrested development in men, marriage and infidelity, the life in small towns versus the city, the melancholy and mystery of deserted nighttime streets, the seashore, and the movies themselves. Another entertaining and interesting film in the director's oeuvre.
