DVD Region 4
Sold by her impoverished mother to Zampano (Anthony Quinn), a brutish fairground wrestler, waif-like Gelsomina (Giuletta Masina) lives a life of drudgery as his assistant. After taking to the road with a travelling circus, a budding relationship with a gentle-natured tightrope walking clown offers a potential refuge from her master’s clutches. Trapped by her own servile nature, Gelsomina waivers and Zampano’s volcanic temper erupts with tragic consequences.
