Giovanni Pastrone: “Cabiria” at Light Industry
There are so many other ways of discussing this remarkable film: the extraordinary use of light, both realistic and poetic, affording greater depth to each scene; the set-pieces, such as the eruption of Etna, and the extraordinary final battle; the sets, particularly the temple of Moloch, and the hand-crafted production design; Italia Almirante-Manzini’s wild, extravagant performance as Sophonisba, Gabriele D’Annunzio’s equally wild and extravagant language in the intertitles; and last but not least, the first appearance of Maciste, Italian cinema’s first action hero. In the end, though, Cabiria is not a collection of great moments or choices, but a magnificent, entrancing whole.” – Martin Scorsese
