Twist And Shout

Regarded by some as Federico Fellini's (LA DOLCE VITA) finest work and the winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, LA STRADA is a masterpiece of 20th Century filmmaking. Sold by her impoverished mother to Zampano (Anthony Quinn, ZORBA THE GREEK), a brutish fairground wrestler, waif-like Gelsomina (Giuletta Masina, GINGER AND FRED) lives a life of drudgery as his assistant. After taking to the road with a travelling circus, a budding relationship with a gentle-natured tightrope walking clown offers a potential refuge from her master's clutches. Trapped by her own servile nature, Gelsomina waivers and Zampano's volcanic temper erupts with tragic consequences.
