LA STRADA, 1954, Janus Films, 107 min. Dir. Federico Fellini. When peasant Gelsomina (the dazzling Giulietta Masina) is sold to boorish strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) as his on-the-road assistant, she quickly becomes both an adept carnival performer and victim of her master’s cruelty. This magical, poetic tale of love, loss and loneliness was one of Fellini’s favorites. With Richard Basehart. Winner of the inaugural Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar in 1956. "Giulietta has the lightness of a phantom, a dream, an idea. She possesses the movements, the mimic skills and the cadences of a clown." - Fellini. In Italian with English subtitles. {35mm}
