Two Line Reviews - #302

Movie: Le notti di Cabiria (or) Nights of Cabiria (Italian,1957)

Plot: The film captures the street life of a prostitute who roams around the streets of Rome and experiences different situations, none of them giving her what she seeks - Love.

This Fellini celebration of an independent witty woman is a pleasant film to watch, for the characters painted are all memorable.
Giulietta Masina, the La Strada lady, plays her role wonderfully well. In some scenes, it is easy to see that she has brought to screen exactly what the director would have wanted of her - spotless acting!
The scenes with the celebrated actor, the mysterious helper & the final anti-climax are simple yet powerful.

Some memorable nights are on show!
