Le notti di Cabiria (Fellini, 1957) - #TSPDT #180

A lively prostitute tries to fall in love but always gets picked up by the wrong guys.

The sheer indestructability of Masina's character made me want to cheer for her bad luck and her strange distortion in judging other people. Of all Fellini's films this one I was totally delighted to watch, maybe because I didn't know about any "film analysis" overtones this would have. It appeared to be more playful, lighter and even quite close to a fictional personality, it beautifully singled out the human warmth of Cabiria.

The meeting with the famous film maker was extremely memorable and her reaction to the lavish house was beautiful and something worth studying shot-by-shot.
