Nights In Cabiria DVD


Welcome to a bittersweet world of episodic adventures and strange encounters. Welcome to a sordid nocturnal world of ruthless callous boyfriends and stray movie stars looking for seedy kicks. Welcome to the harsh unforgiving streets of a crumbling Rome where hope can still prevail and dreams cradle the lost. Welcome to the world of Cabiria a feisty loud outspoken and somewhat na''ve prostitute waiting for a miracle and one of the most unforgettable and endearing characters of European cinema. Eventually remade in Hollywood as Sweet Charity Nights Of Cabiria is a often... humorous poignant unflinching and vivid portrait of one woman's picaresque existence and her perseverance through adversity. Starring Fellini's wife Giulietta Masina as the irrepressible protagonist Nights Of Cabiria marked Fellini's last foray into gritty neo-realism before venturing into the surreal satire and dream logic of La Dolce Vita and Eight And A Half.

Cabiria (Giuletta Masina) is a resilient Italian prostitute who, despite the various disappointments which come her way, always looks on the bright side of life. Even her optimism is threatened, however, when she is dumped first by a glamorous film star (Amedo Nazzari), then by her supposedly respectable fiancé, Oscar (Francois Périer), who also absconds with Cabiria's life savings. Federico Fellini directs.
