‘Le Notti di Cabiria (The Nights of Cabiria)’ Movie Summary
In the United States, Le Notti di Cabiria is full of the stuff country western songs are made of. In Italy, it’s the stuff of Neorealism drama.
The tough, but vulnerable Cabiria is robbed, and thrown into a river by her boyfriend, Giorgio, whom she adores. Cabiria can’t swim, and nearly drowns, but some boys save her at the last minute.
She storms off from her saviors; looking for Giorgio, but he is nowhere to be found. Her neighbor and best friend, Wanda, tries to console Cabiria, but she doesn’t want to hear it. Instead, Cabiria returns to work as a prostitute.
One night at the “office,” Cabiria meets the movie star, Alberto Lazzari after he fights with his girlfriend. He takes Cabiria around town before ending up at his mansion. The poor girl is in awe of his luxury, even though she is very proud of her own, simple home.read full summary
