Film Series: La Strada

1954. Italy. Dir: Federico Fellini. With Anthony Quinn, Giulietta Masina. 108 min.

A brutish strongman traveling the Italian countryside acquires a young waif to help him with his act, and together they discover wonders upon the road. Everyone has their purpose in this fable of loneliness and understanding – but while the story may be simple, Fellini’s rich visuals and Nino Rota’s sublime score convey something much more complex.
