La Strada (1954)

Italy 104m, B&W
Director: Federico Fellini; Cast: Anthony Quinn, Giulietta Masina, Richard Basehart

lastradaLa Strada is an engaging drama about Gelsomina, a naive young woman who accepts her fate as a replacement for her older sister who has died while in the company of Zampanò, a strongman who travels the country performing feats of strength. A masterful performance by Masina as a melancholy girl who simply wishes to be accepted by her brutish companion, but who is continually disappointed in this tragic story of love, soul-searching and regret (Klaus Ming November 2014).
