Simple-minded girl, played by Fellini's wife, Masina, is sold to a brutal, coarse circus strong-man and she falls in love with him despite his abuse. They tour the countryside and eventually meet up with a gentle acrobat, played by Basehart, who alters their fate. Fellini masterwork was the director's first internationally acclaimed film, and is, by turns, somber and amusing as it demonstrates the filmmaker's sensitivity to the underprivileged of the world and his belief in spiritual redemption. Subtitled in English.

Watch this classic Fellini film... and look for the scene where Anthony Quinn's character Zampano inhales an ice cream cone (a gelato?) in one bite. Quinn plays his role perfectly. Give it a chance... it's slow at times, but it's worth it.
