(THE ROAD)

Year of production : 1954 Country : ITALY Length : 94 minutes

Synopsis

"We're never really quite sure how much Gelsomina really understands the adult mind. Yet she’s got the heart, and she’s the one point of redemption for Zampanò, who’s a brutal man that is angry at the world, angry at himself and very violent. The film takes place in the outside world, in the grotesque and hostile world still reeling from the war. But what is so lasting about the picture is the humour and the compassion that’s found in this grotesque world, through Gelsomina and through Zampanò. And it’s a classic celebration of life by Fellini: it’s called La Strada (The Road), and on the road they go to the seashore, of course, there are weddings, carnivals and piazzas, it’s a metaphor for living, a metaphor for life [...]". (Martin Scorsese, 2013)
