English Summary:

La strada (lit. '"The Road"') is a 1954 Italian drama film directed by Federico Fellini from his own screenplay co-written with Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Flaiano. The film tells the story of Gelsomina, a simple-minded young woman (Giulietta Masina) bought from her mother by Zampanò (Anthony Quinn), a brutish strongman who takes her with him on the road.

Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), a young woman, learns that her sister Rosa has died after going on the road with the strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn). Now the man has returned a year later to ask her mother if Gelsomina will take Rosa's place. The mother accepts 10,000 lire, and her daughter departs the same day.

Zampanò makes his living as an itinerant street performer, entertaining crowds by breaking an iron chain bound tightly across his chest, then passing the hat for tips. In short order, Gelsomina's naïve and antic nature emerges, with Zampanò's brutish methods presenting a callous foil. He teaches her to play the snare drum and trumpet, dance a bit, and clown for the audience. Despite her willingness to please, he intimidates her and treats her cruelly at times.

 

Spanish Summary:

La strada es una película italiana de 1954 producida por Dino De Laurentiis y Carlo Ponti, dirigida por Federico Fellini y con Anthony Quinn y Giulietta Masina, esposa de Fellini, como actores principales. Es un ejemplo clásico del período neorrealista del director y la película que le otorgaría un sólido prestigio internacional.

Una joven que trabaja para un artista ambulante llamado Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) muere y su madre toma a Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), también hija suya, y la vende al artista.

Pese al carácter violento de Zampanò, la muchacha se siente atraída por el estilo de vida en la calle (la strada), sobre todo cuando su dueño la incluye como parte del espectáculo. Gelsomina aprende rápidamente el oficio de artista y demuestra gran talento, pero no se siente apreciada por Zampanò y en un momento decide abandonarlo y volver a casa. Zampanó encuentra a Gelsomina y la obliga a regresar con él.
