‘La Strada’ (The Road) is a 1954 Italian drama film directed & co-written by Federico Fellini. The film tells the story of Gelsomina, a simple-minded young woman bought from her mother by Zampanò (Anthony Quinn), a brutish strongman who takes her with him on the road. Finally, she rebels and leaves, making her way into town. As throughout the film, even in her wretchedness, she manages to find beauty and wonder, aided by some local children. Before Zampanò's release from prison, Il Matto proposes to Gelsomina that there are alternatives to her servitude and imparts his philosophy that everything and everyone has a purpose – even a pebble, even she. La Strada has become "one of the most influential films ever made", according to the American Film Institute. It won the inaugural Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1957.
