Nights of Cabiria

Nights of Cabiria

One of those films that instantly go on my top 4. Much like with La Strada, Masina and Fellini are able to create an entertaining and empathetic character. However, unlike the naive Gelsomina, Cabiria is optimistic yet worldly. Her plight is more relevant to us — she's just looking for happiness, security, and love.

Lots of feeling and thoughts to sort through still, will have to rewatch.
