Fellini’s Nights of Cabiria (1957)
This is the first Fellini film I have ever seen. I know, I know. I’m WAY behind, but I promise to catch up.
I think watching this Fellini film first was quite fitting for me. I love the close ups and the crazy characters. Not to mention the fact that Cabiria is a very relatable character. Here, she is a prostitute in Rome who just wants to fall in love. It’s a tragic story, but there’s hope and that’s all that matters right?
I’m not going to give the plot away. If you haven’t seen it, you should do so as soon as you can. It’ll make you feel better about life or at least help you escape for a while.
You’ll probably fall in love with Giulietta Masina. I did. I think we were separated at birth.
