Movie Recommendation: Nights Of Cabiria

If you're a fan of old movies, especially foreign films, then you'll love Fellini's much acclaimed Nights of Cabiria.

G and I watched it last weekend and both really enjoyed it. Such a treasure! The lead actress Giulietta Masina is incredible. Masina, also Fellini's wife, has one of the most expressive faces that I've ever seen. She's charming and really makes you fall in love with her character.

This might be one of the original hooker with a heart of gold stories. But this is no Pretty Woman! And your world view will color how you see the ending. Are you a glass half full or half empty sort of person?

If you're looking for a film to see this weekend, it's a must see!

They mentioned this movie on an episode of Ebert Presents! One of the hosts named this movie as one of her most influential. I put it in my Netflix queue right away. Now that I know you liked it, I'm looking forward to it, too.
