Added DiffLines:

* TheOneWhoMadeItOut: All of the five Vitelloni want to get out of town and make it big in the wider world and they keep making plans to escape but most of them stumble and fail to act on their plans. [[spoiler:Moraldo is the only one who manages it, and the finale is a poignant montage of him in the train leaving the town intercut with small vignettes showing his friends adjusting to their small time lives, surrendering their dreams and hopes forever]].


Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: All movies about slackers and young kids trying to make something of their lives are ultimately descended from Fellini's TropeCodifier including ''Film/MeanStreets''.

Added DiffLines:

* UntranslatedTitle: ''I Vitelloni'' ("The slabs of veal") was an insulting term for [[TheSlacker Slackers]] in the dialect of Fellini's home region of Romagna. The original American release retitled it ''[[CompletelyDifferentTitle The Young and the Passionate]]'', but it's gone by the original title since then. Interestingly, this trope also applied for ''I Vitelloni'' in most regions of Italy, where they'd never heard that bit of slang before.

* AuthorAvatar: Moraldo is usually considered to be one for Fellini himself.



* OutOfFocus: There are five ''Vitelloni'', but Alberto and Riccardo largely disappear in the second half of the film, as the story centers on Fausto and Moraldo, plus Leopoldo to a lesser extent.

''I Vitelloni'' is a 1953 film directed by FedericoFellini that deals with a bunch of slackers and their supposedly carefree lives. One of them, Fausto, blows this when he leaves his girlfriend pregnant [[ShotgunWedding and is forced to marry her]]. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t try [[TheCasanova to seduce other women]], though.
