“The positive nature of Cabiria is so wonderful. Cabiria offers herself to the lowest bidder and hears truth in the lies.
Though she is a prostitute, her basic instinct is to search for
happiness as best she can, but she has not been dealt a good hand. She
wants to change, but she has been typecast in life as a loser. Yet she
is a loser who always goes on to look again for some happiness.” –Federico Fellini
