Le Notti di Cabiria (Nights of Cabiria)(1957)

A heartbreaking, beautiful Fellini film that earns much of its power from Giulietta Masina's incredible performance. Nights of Cabiria does become a bit dull and overlong in stretches, but Fellini and Masina's portrait of this tough, vulgar but eternally hopeful prostitute wandering the streets of Rome is sympathetic and downright enchanting in its best moments.

La Strada is an even better Fellini/Masina collaboration.
