Federico Fellini

Notti di cabiria (Nights of Cabiria)

110' - 1957 - Drama - Dialogue: Italian, Latin
Director: Federico Fellini Composer: Nino Rota With: Giulietta Masina, François Périer, Franca Marzi
Possibly Fellini's finest film, and a work in which Giulietta Masina (his wife) earns the praise she received for La strada. The structure is a series of episodes in the life of Cabiria (Masina), a shabby, aging, dreamy little Roman streetwalker - a girl whose hard, knowing air is no protection against her fundamental gullibility, which, we finally see, is her humanity and her saving grace. A famous actor (Amedeo Nazzari) picks her up and takes her to his luxurious villa; she goes to a cheap vaudeville show, and when the magician hypnotizes her, the innocent dreams of her adolescence pour out; a young man in the audience (François Périer) meets her and proposes to her.
