Directed by Federico Fellini
Giulietta Masina plays Gelsomina, a tragic waif sold to play clown to travelling show
strongman Zampano (Anthony Quinn). "Simplicity itself, La Strada is a magical
tale and an unbearably painful account of loneliness which will always be associated with
the sublimely Chaplinesque Masina
but Quinn, too, is superb, particularly in the
final revelation of his own heartbreak and isolation." With Richard Basehart and Aldo
Silvani. Italian with English subtitles.
