Rome, 1957. A woman, Cabiria, is robbed and left to drown by her boyfriend, Giorgio. Rescued, she resumes her life and tries her best to find happiness in a cynical world. Even when she thinks her struggles are over and she has found happiness and contentment, things may not be what they seem.Written by
Nights of Cabiria has been available in videos in the original version. The Rialto Pictures 1998 version, released in theaters in 1998, restores a scene showing a mystery man with a sack delivering food and blankets to people sheltered in holes. The 1998 version restored picture and sound, has a new translation, and is available from The Criterion Collection (DVD) and Homevision Cinema (DVD). See more »
No doubt about that this is one of the best films ever made!
Giulietta Massina as the the prostitute is who was born to lose(but still never give up) is MASTERFUL.She creates a wonderful innocent character.Federico Fellini (her husband)is telling a very simple still complicated story and I was VERY impressed with his fantastic direction. I must say that you suffer with Cabiria, For example when she meets the movie star.A masterpiece from the start to the end and I would call it one of the best films ever made.No doubt about 5/5
