NEW 4K RESTORATION

Academy Award® winner, Best Foreign Language Film

ONE WEEK ONLY

Directed by Federico Fellini | Written by Fellini & Tullio Pinelli with Ennio Flaiano
Cinematography by Otello Martinelli | Music by Nino Rota
Starring Giulietta Masina, Anthony Quinn, Richard Basehart

(1954) Bought from her parents to assist the act of Anthony Quinn’s brutish strongman “Zampanò,” Giulietta Masina’s simple-minded peasant girl Gelsomina is taught a haunting tune by a dreamy aerialist (American actor Richard Basehart) and assured that she too has a place in the world. An enormous international success and personal triumph for Masina, La Strada was awarded the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of its year.    

Restored in 4K by the Criterion Collection and The Film Foundation at Cineteca di Bologna’s L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, from a 35mm dupe negative preserved by Beta Film GmbH. Restoration funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Presented as part of Fellini 100, an international celebration of the director’s centennial year.

Reviews

“TRANSPORTED NEOREALISM TO A NEW PLACE… MASINA ALL BUT PATENTED THE ADJECTIVE ‘CHAPLINESQUE’ WITH HER REPERTOIRE OF PANTOMIMED WONDER.”
– J. Hoberman

“MASINA’S PRESENCE IS ONE OF THE MOST MAGICAL IN WORLD CINEMA.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
