Federico Fellini's 1954 classic
La Strada is an Italian curiosity, a black and white masterpiece that focuses on love and cruelty in a travelling circus. Yep. This pure yet rich movie actually won the 1956 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and its legacy has only grown since then. If you consider yourself to be someone who's into moving pictures, then it simply has to be seen. Over 18s only. In Italian with English subtitles.
"Signor Fellini has used his small cast, and, equally important, his camera, with the unmistakable touch of an artist. His vignettes fill his movie with beauty, sadness, humor and understanding."
