Barbara Jefford & Pina Bausch

in e la Nave va, Federico Fellini, 1983

I watched e la Nave va again last night, mostly for the pleasure of watching these two remarkable performers and the ways Fellini finds to photograph them.  Both women are presented as schemers, though la Principessa Lherimia (Bausch) appears the picture of innocence at first and, contrastedly, Ildebranda Cuffari (Jefford) proves far kinder than she first seems.
