20th June NIGHTS OF CABIRIA ( 1957). Dir: Frederico Fellini Cert PG. Sub titles

Cabiria (Giulietta Masina) is a happy go lucky passionate street walker who finds herself constantly challenged by the men in her life as her Romantic liaisons consistently fail. This film, starring Frederico’s wife as the lead character, has been described as ‘a magical mix of Neo-Realism and Romantic optimism set on the streets of Rome’. Fellini triumphs in engaging the audience as we experience Cabiria’s bittersweet disillusions, her trials and emotions that are tempered with honest hope and strength in optimism. No other Fellini film portrays such a soaring celebration of the human spirit in the face of such bitter devastation. A must for all Fellini fans.
