In this 110-minute, Oscar winning special Italian edition of 'All men are shits', Federico Fellini pulls no punches in illustrating the lengths they will go to mistreat, deceive and generally hurt the ladies in their lives.
Cabiria is an absolute doll. A salt of the earth type that is honest, genuine and mostly just looking for love, stability and to be appreciated for who she is. She makes ends meet by doing the only job she knows and finds herself surrounded by some really interesting characters.
A succession of men enter her life, build up her hopes and bring her crashing back down in what could be described by some as 'situation normal'. It made me sad though, Very sad indeed, and now I shall have to open my special whiskey to console myself.
Next week, don't miss the return of the new series of 'Why be nice when bitch-mode will do'.
