"A cinematic masterpiece." –Janet Maslin, New York Times

Winner of an Oscar and of a Best Actress Award at Cannes for Guilietta Masina, this poignant, haunting tale, told in episodic form, follows a young, toughened prostitute as she travels through the seedy sides of Rome in search of redemption. The musicality of the film's narrative structure is perfectly reflected in Nino Rota's precise and nuanced score, and Masina's performance remains one of cinema's greatest. "There is more grace and courage in the famous image of Giulietta Masina smiling through her tears," Pauline Kael wrote, "than in all the fire-breathing blockbusters Hollywood has to offer." (Italy, 1954, 108m, 35mm, Rialto, in Italian with English subtitles)
