A 1957 Creator/FedericoFellini film that deals with Cabiria, a hooker in the suburbs of Rome, and her weird experiences, including almost being drowned by a man, going to a progression, meeting a famous actor and wondering if she should change her ways. She tries again and again to change her life for the better, but never has any luck. The problem is that she is a fairly idealistic person against a very cynical world.

* BittersweetEnding: It should be a terribly depressing DownerEnding, really. Oscar robs Cabiria of absolutely everything; her 700,000-lira bankroll is gone, her house is already sold, she has nothing but the clothes she's wearing, and is left as a lonely penniless prostitute. But as she's walking down the road weeping, a bunch of partiers singing and playing instruments appear, and they cheer Cabiria up. She smiles as the film fades to black. * BookEnds: The film starts and finishes with a man robbing Cabiria’s purse alongside a river. Also, both men contemplate on throwing her to the river; the first one does it.

* HopeSpot: Oscar romances Cabiria and asks her to marry him, and it seems like she might escape her sad existence. But there is an air of foreboding about the romance. Then Cabiria shows Oscar her bankroll and he starts to act somewhat distance, and the feeling of doom intensifies. By the time he tells her he knows a shortcut through the woods, the end is practically a ForegoneConclusion.
