La Dolce Vita is a movie of hardship and pain. Torn between a search for love and an urge to satisfy a hedonistic appetite. Here we see clearly the protagonists father at his best, a married man living life as if he were single. In the story Marcello can’t find happiness and he searches for it through the streets of Rome following party after party and women after women. Marcello turned out to be just like his father; miserable and unhappy with his life, he was never home and was a womaniser just like Marcello. Father and son, what happens at home within a family is usually the product of how the children will turn out to be in the future.
