Federico Fellini‘s La Strada delivers one of the saddest and most fully satisfying endings in cinema history (providing you see the entire film before it), and surely one of the most penetrating moments ever from Anthony Quinn. He’s hearing words as clearly as Charlton Heston did when he knelt before the burning bush in The Ten Commandments. Did Lars Von Trier “steal” from this in a sense when he decided on the heavenly bells visual at the end of Breaking The Waves?
