Movie: La Strada (Italian, 1954)
- The film deals with special characters to give the positive message that 'anything that exists in the world has a purpose'. The scene between the innocent lady and the funny entertainer that stresses this wonderful point is a highlight in this Federico Fellini work.
- Anthony Quinn as the ill-tempered traveller who doesn't know to express feelings - good or bad - acts marvelously.
- The histrionics of the heroine who plays the innocent and strange looking Gelsomina is effective in making the viewer love the character she plays.
