I decided to go ahead and blog about certain scenes and movies that really get to me, this one for example from “La Strada” , I think what we watch, hear, read, should have an effect on us, if not what’s the point..we are used of just diversion, but details,words and images that stir something inside you are the ones worth watching.
I can’t get enough of Giulietta Masina she is perfect in this film, her face is incredible, she is capable of expressing an array of emotions without a word and making you feel closer to the character she portrays..
The Fool: I am ignorant, but I read books. You won’t believe it, everything is useful… this pebble for instance. Gelsomina: Which one? The Fool: Anyone. It is useful. Gelsomina: What for? The Fool: For… I don’t know. If I knew I’d be the Almighty, who knows all. When you are born and when you die… Who knows? I don’t know for what this pebble is useful but it must be useful. For if its useless, everything is useless. So are the stars!
If you want a sweet yet powerful movie with amazing acting..you should check this one out.

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”
“The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.”
