Vitelloni means "big calves" in Italian; Fellini uses the word to describe idle young men without occupations who refuse to grow up and are supported by parents, relatives and friends. Five adolescent loafers in the Adriatic city of Romini postpone adulthood by idling in their home town. Fellini's elegy to the passage of youth reveals true insights through the characters of the likeable boys, one of whom depends on his sister while another is a careless Lothario.
