Nights of Cabiria
Le notti di Cabiria
Giulietta Masina delivers another unforgettable performance as a plucky Roman prostitute.
Dir Federico Fellini
With Giulietta Masina, François Périer, Amedeo Nazzari
Co-written with Pier Paolo Pasolini, Nights of Cabiria sees Fellini bring wife Giulietta Masina centre stage for the story of an unfailingly optimistic prostitute and her misadventures in and around the Eternal City. The film was the inspiration for Neil Simon’s 1966 musical Sweet Charity, which itself was adapted for the screen by Bob Fosse three years later.
