La Strada (The Road)

Federico Fellini

This 1954 film leaves a deep impression with its story and magnificent characters played by Anthony Quinn and Giuletta Masina (Fellini's wife). The wave of Neo-realism that washed over Europe during this time is reflected in the film but Fellini goes further and creates a lyrical love story hardened by the hardships of ordinary folk in post-war Italy.

The stark beauty of this black and white film is Fellini's third film and awarded Fellini him legendary status. . A must-see for all film buffs.
