Federico Fellini, long a scripter, in his second feature film satirizes the 'wastrels', the do-nothing sons of middle-class Italian provincials whose life ranges from schoolroom to poolroom. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Full of brilliantly executed coups de théâtre, showing the director's natural flair for spectacle. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Moving from cafés to poolrooms to movie theaters, it's the prototypical male ensemble film. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
It was this ineffably poignant semiautobiographical reverie that unleashed fully Fellini's shimmering, flowing poetic style, echoed perfectly in a plaintive score by Fellini's potently evocative collaborator, Nino Rota. Full Review
Kim Newman
It’s as wistful and sad as it is funny and charming, with the first of Nino Rota’s great scores to keep it burbling along. Full Review
