“MASINA’S PRESENCE IS ONE OF THE MOST MAGICAL IN WORLD CINEMA.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
There has never been a face quite like that of Giulietta Masina. Her husband, the legendary Federico Fellini, directs her as Gelsomina in LA STRADA, the film that launched them both to international stardom. Fellini’s vision of the world as a whirling, bittersweet carnival begins with this tragicomic fable, which features the indelible pairing of two icons of world cinema. Anthony Quinn is the brutish traveling-circus strongman Zampanò, who takes as his performing partner Masina’s sensitive, dreamy Gelsomina, a delicate spirit gradually crushed by his cruelty. Breaking once and for all with neorealism, Fellini offers up a stream of memorably poetic moments, from an Easter Parade filmed in swooping eagle-eye angles to the shattering, seaside-set finale. Most haunting of all though is Masina’s soulful, Pierrot-like countenance, which somehow registers all shades of human sweetness and pathos. Audiences can now enjoy this Academy Award winner (Best Foreign Film, 1956) in its restored, 4K glory!
