La Strada

In a story of true outsiders, Masina plays Gelsomina, a na´ve young woman sold by her desperate mother to boorish strongman Zampan˛ (an immensely charismatic Anthony Quinn) to be both his wife and performance assistant as he tours central Italy. Zampan˛ - a brute by trade and by nature - repeatedly abuses Gelsomina as she struggles to learn the ropes; meanwhile, she finds a kindred spirit in his rival the Fool (Richard Basehart). Soon all three find themselves part of the same travelling circus, but with tragic consequences.
