Synopsis:

The first film ever to be awarded a Best Foreign Language Oscar, Fellini’s La Strada is a touching tale about circus strong man Zampano (Quinn), and slow-witted Gelsomina (Masina) who take to the road with a travelling circus.


Characteristically mingling elements of biography with metaphor and symbolism, the film combines an easy-going charm with a hard-edged realism. Masina - Fellini’s wife until his death - is astonishing in the central role and Nina Rota’s evocative score and Otello Martelli’s ravishing photography make La Strada an unforgettable experience.
