La Strada

"Fellini moves us profoundly, not only for Gelsomina but for all the characters in La Strada, their lives circumscribed by superstition, miracles and magic. He makes us see a very specific facet of our lives in them."
— The Guardian

There has never been a face quite like that of Giulietta Masina. Her husband, the legendary Federico Fellini, directs her as Gelsomina in La Strada, the film that launched them both to international stardom. Gelsomina is sold by her mother into the employ of Zampanò (Anthony Quinn), a brutal strongman in a traveling circus. When Zampanò encounters an old rival in highwire artist the Fool (Richard Basehart), his fury is provoked to its breaking point. With La Strada, Fellini left behind the familiar signposts of Italian neorealism for a poetic fable of love and cruelty, evoking brilliant performances and winning the hearts of audiences and critics worldwide. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1956.
