Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
A touching tragi-comic portrait of a Roman prostitute, Nights of Cabiria is a showcase for the talents of Giulietta Masina, director Federico Fellini's wife. With movements that echo Chaplin's Little Tramp, the diminutive Masina is a tough-talking working girl, ready to start fighting the moment she is revived from a near-drowning incident at the hands of her boyfriend. She is not afraid to do dancehall moves in a crowd at a pretentious nightclub or join in fights with rival prostitutes. Yet she is fragile and vulnerable, seeking redemption from the Virgin Mary and always on a quest for love. The story is broken up into episodes, each where Cabiria is subjected to humiliation by several men, including a movie star and a hypnotist. She persists with her unique optimism and stubborn independence. Neither reformed nor condemned, Cabiria embodies the naïve bravado of a "hooker with the heart of gold." Elements of Fellini's later visual style seem to be developing here; the exotic dance routine in the nightclub and the circus-like processions reappear in his famed La Dolce Vita. Nights of Cabiria was reworked into the sentimentalized musical Sweet Charity by Bob Fosse. In 1998, Nights of Cabiria was restored and re-released with an additional scene.

    A reviewer

    I was surfing the channels and came upon this movie not long after it started,so I missed the title and all other information. I was hypnotized! I didn't even like subtitled movies back then. The lighting of this black and white movie truly captured everything in life! The actress was SO REAL. I FELT AS THOUGH I WAS HER OR SHE WAS ME, thats how deep this movie draws you in. I have looked for this movie's title and info since I saw it 8 years ago. Now all I have to do is buy it. I doubt if enough people can truly appreciate this work of art as I did.I don't know much about art, BUT, I know what I like!

    One Great Scene

    Nights of Cabiria is probably the most underated film of Fellini. Giulietta performance in the stage scene where she is hypnotizes is one of the most artistic and emotional scene ever filmed. Sadly, we are all on that stage in the scene.

    One of the gems of film making

    This film is a gem. Giulietta Masina's performance is simply outstanding as is Fellini's direction. The film offers no wham-bam special effects just a simple story told with taste, delicacy and compassion. This one is not to be missed.

    Bittersweet but wonderful film.

    This is truly a wonderful movie. The only Fellini movie I've ever seen--and as I understand it, a departure from his usual. However, very naughty of you to give away the end of the movie!
