La Strada (1954)

Cry, laugh, cry, laugh, cry, laugh. Masina is absolutely fantastic. Some people have said she over-acted; I'm not so sure. To me her performance was that of an actor in a silent film. With so little dialogue she acted with her body and conveyed the emotions required perfectly. What was the film about? The basic idea is that everyone and everything has a purpose and Masina's purpose is to slowly crack Quinn's brutish exterior. Redemption through the acts of another. Terrific film.
