Synopsis

An Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, this is the tale of a naive streetwalker who wanders the seedy streets of Rome searching for love and a way out of her sordid life. She finds everything but that.

Our take

Giulietta Masina took home the best actress prize from Cannes for her spectacular turn in this Fellini classic. Before his baroque surrealist epics, Fellini made the most intimate of character driven films, of which Nights of Cabiria stands at the forefront with unmatched warmth, charm, and heart.
