La Strada 

Italie, Federico Fellini, 1954, 108 min

Lion d’argent à la Mostra de Venise en 1954 (OVEST)

Oscar du meilleur film en langue étrangère en 1957

Zampano, un forain ambulant spécialisé dans les tours de force, achète à une mère misérable Gelsomina, une femme enfant naïve et généreuse. Elle le suit dans ses tournées et le sert fidèlement, bien que son maître, homme rustre et laconique, la maltraite sans scrupules. Gelsomina éprouve cependant un certain attachement pour lui et s’efforce de lui plaire avec une touchante obstination. À bord d’un étrange équipage, une moto à trois roues aménagée en roulotte sans confort, le couple sillonne les routes d’Italie, menant la rude et triste vie des forains.

Chef d’œuvre du cinéma italien des années 1950, récompensé aux Oscars, La Strada est le premier grand film de Fellini.
