nights of cabiria

Okay, we’re going out on a limb here given our stance on Pretty Woman, but trust us this Fellini film is not advocating becoming a plucky whore so you can be rescued by handsome and wealthy business man. Cabiria, the prostitute of the title, treats the business as a business, and takes care of her self. However, a hopeless romantic, she gets taken in by a number of unscrupulous men. Giulietta Masina plays Cabiria like Lucille Ball on the wrong side of the tracks: her energy is infectious and you can’t help believing that the next man is going to see her for the gem that she is. [italy, 1957]
