In a small, poverty-stricken village in the South of Italy, Antonio, Francesco, and Sergio are three unemployed young men with uneventful lives. They while their time away roaming the streets and chasing girls, constantly hatching half-hearted plans but hopelessly trapped in their own lethargy.

Our take

A socialist trailblazer, Lina Wertmüller began her career as assistant to Fellini, whose influence permeates her neorealist debut. Scored by Ennio Morricone and shot by the DP of , this mesmerizing drama delves into the trials of small-town Italian life. Bask in the glory of this new restoration.
