Federico Fellini directs Alberto Sordi, Franco Fabrizi and Leopoldo Trieste in this Italian drama where five men entering their thirties laze about their small town like princes in waiting.
Often very beautiful, with some stand out carnival and caper sequences. I don’t think Fellini likes this bunch of wastrels all that much but even in their lighter and sillier moments it is very difficult to warm to them. They are a bunch of pricks and any affection generated towards them happened in the last century.
