La Strada

Actually it was La Strada that was waiting for me. It reinforced for me what a great character actor Anthony Quinn is, what a fabulous director Fellini is, after all, and what a miraculous face Guiletta Masina has. Wonderful film….makes it close to Novacento for me.

A tale of bravery, callousness, the need to be hard in hard times and the effects this has on us. Does he feel remorse in the end? Or self pity and loneliness? Would she have ever developed the will to leave? (No, she was well and truly battered). Phew, good movie.
