Starring Giulietta Masina - the wife, muse and collaborator of Fellini. The film tells the story of a prostitute called Cabiria Ceccarelli and in her pursuit for love. Her facial expressions, body language... Her emotions change from sadness and despair to a hopeful contentedness all in one moment. I catch myself following her facial expressions and posture. Her pain and sorrow in her times of solitude, and her moments of ecstatic joy become one with her surroundings. "[...] intense performances of naïve characters dealing with cruel circumstances, Masina is often called the female Chaplin".
