Often called the Italian cinema's "director of youth," Castellani made himself an overnight success with this spirited but flawed portrayal of a post-WW II group of adolescents. The film concentrates on a few years in the life of Blando, shown episodically (as is the case with all the

characters). It details various incidents, including the death of Blando's parents due to his irresponsibility. Mixed in with the surprisingly humorous Neo-Realist nature of the film is an overwrought and melodramatic romance that is perhaps the film's greatest drawback. Castellani followed this

picture with two more in the same optimistic vein. (In Italian; English subtitles.)
