In between there are three major sequences making this point in various ways a strange, fantastic episode in w^hich she is taken up by a rich actor after a lovers' quarrel, swept through a fantasmagoric Roman night-life and finally thrown out and disregarded when the girl-friend comes back and the actor's life returns to normal (a classic instance of our old friend the ravelling-unravelling technique) a pilgrimage to the Divino Amore, which seems to hold out some possibility of religious understanding and consolation to Cabiria, and then turns into a prostitutes' picnic; and a scene in which she becomes the victim of a music-hall hypnotist, is induced to act out her most cherished fantasies of love in an idyllic dream world and then rudely returned to reality amid the cruel laughter of the onlookers.

The story has been described by G. B. Cavallaro in a famous phrase as 'the fantastic history of a sad honeymoon with a posthumous declaration of love', which is all right as far as it goes. Like / Vitelloni, it is built round a series of key sequences which bring characters face to face with the truth, but this time there are only two characters involved, Gelsomina and Zampano, and the crises, not being shunned, bring progressive revelation, first to her and then, after a long evasion, to him. The principal progress in the film is that of Gelsomina from innocence to active goodness, goodness tested by an intuitive encounter with religion during the procession early on a confrontation with suflfering (the sick child ing fully ; wedding party) the convent); and at the (at ; Zampano a realization of the woman's role as a wife a first experience of violent death when Matto, the well-disposed, mercurial but to him slightly demonic acrobat who keeps crossing their path.

One wonders if Fellini himself would feel competent to give a decisive answer, but whatever the verbal reply he would offer to an intellectually formulated question, there is no doubt of the efficacy of the answer the sequence gives in film terms to the questions formulated in film terms by what has gone before. In location, in the direction and duration of Augusto's ascent (again we share the character's time, on this occasion almost unbearably long drawn out), in the grey, stone-obsessed quality of the photography, Fellini offers the perfect resolution of the film's earlier and dark, the worlds of La Strada and / sequence completes the film's structure with unmistakable authority, and here director's authority: the sequence could hardly have been conceived, let alone successfully realized, by any writer who was not a director to his fingertips, dealing all conflicts Vitelloni.
