August 27, 2019
The movie retains Fellini's narrative newness and his lucid disposition to film the reality he met on his way. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 20, 2016
Fellini's sad and magical nocturne, a demimonde hopping to Nino Rota's nightclub mambo and Masina's wondrous way with silent-movie throbs
February 28, 2014
One of Fellini's most effective films -- probably the best of his neo-realist dramas.

An overlooked masterpiece from Fellini.
September 6, 2006
Fellini's masterpiece, which won the Foreign-Language Oscar, features Giulietta Masina (Fellini's wife) in her most heart-breaking performances, playing a naive prostitute who endures an endless series of devastating misfortunes with her soul intact.
August 29, 2006
Giulietta Masina's finest hour, and perhaps husband Federico Fellini's as well.
July 22, 2006
Straightforward depiction of a lonely woman's desperate plight and inability to deal with evil and conniving men.

In 1957, Fellini was still as indebted to neo-realism as to surrealism, and this melancholy tale of a prostitute working the outskirts of Rome is notable for its straightforward depiction of destitution.

What makes the character so poignant is that her final fortification is not her street wisdom -- that's all surface -- but her innocence. Her ultimate protection is our sympathy for her.

Even in the mutilated version of the film, Masina shone and sparkled in her shabby role.
May 19, 2005
One of Fellini's finest.

Nights of Cabiria is a heartbreaking foray into the breezy Roma evenings, a tragic portrayal of empty hopes, frustration, and shattered pride.

Ingnua, romntica e sempre esperanosa, Cabria a personagem definitiva de Giulietta Masina e tambm uma das mais marcantes da filmografia de Fellini, que constri um filme comovente e incrivelmente revelador sobre a fora da natureza humana.

This Academy Award-winner for Best Foreign Film is always cited as one of Fellini's greatest.

Cabiria's story is indeed heartrending, but neither director nor actress allow her time for self-pity.
