Two young unenployed men, Scintillone and Ruggeretto, pick up a couple of prostitutes. They hope their company will help them sell some rifles they have stolen. On their way they meet Bella Bella, who also aids them in selling the goods.

A day (-and a night) in the life of several Roman hoodlums and prostitutes in the Italy of the late 50's. Bolognini and Pasolini's imaginary worlds brilliantly overlap here. If the comments on money or on natural instinct are undoubtedly Pasolini's, there are also sublime scenes, aesthetically speaking, that reveal the talent of Mauro Bolognini. Highly recommended.
