The first film Federico Fellini directed solo (1951, 83 min.), this is a funny, sardonic, and clever satire on popular heroes and ordinary people's illusions. A young provincial couple journeys to Trieste and the bride (Brunella Bova) finds that her idol—the White Sheik of a photographed comic strip (Alberto Sordi)—is not the superman she imagined. Giulietta Masina appears in a small part as the prostitute Cabiria, who would later become the subject of a full-scale Fellini project. In Italian with subtitles.
