La Strada Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Regarded by some as Federico Fellini's finest work, and the winner of the first Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film, La Strada is a masterpiece of 20th Century filmmaking. Sold by her impoverished mother to Zampano (Anthony Quinn), a brutish fairground wrestler, waif-like Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina) lives a life of drudgery as his assistant. After taking to the road with a travelling circus, a budding relationship with Il Matto/The Fool (Richard Basehart), a gentle-natured, tightrope walking clown, offers a potential refuge from her master's clutches. Trapped by her own servile nature, Gelsomina waivers, and Zampano's volcanic temper erupts with tragic consequences.

Classic Italian drama co-written and directed by Federico Fellini. The film follows Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), a young girl who is sold by her impoverished mother to a travelling performer named Zampano (Anthony Quinn) in exchange for some food. With his act involving breaking a metal chain wrapped around his chest, Zampano attempts to incorporate Gelsomina into his routine by teaching her to perform a drum roll as part of his introduction. However, when the pair join up with a small travelling circus, fellow performer Il Matto (Richard Basehart) soon questions the way Zampano treats Gelsomina, leaving her facing a number of tough choices as she contemplates her future. The cast also includes Aldo Silvani, Marcella Rovere and Livia Venturini.
