Le Notti Di Cabiria
Practising the world's oldest profession against the archaeological backdrop of Rome's Parco di Porta Capena, the trusting and stubbornly optimistic streetwalker, Cabiria, (Giulietta Masina) refuses to lose faith in love. After escaping death by the skin of her teeth, hurt, and momentarily disenchanted, Cabiria continues to confront life with a mixture of naivety and arrogance, lurching from one improbable relationship to another.
A brief dalliance with a film star affords her a brief glimpse of how the other half live. ‘Nights of Cabiria’ is a depiction of one person’s circumstances, whether created through her own doing or by bad luck, and how Cabiria must continue to struggle for the attainment of a dignified life.
