Shot on location in postwar Rome with non-professional actors, the film tells of a long-unemployed man who, accompanied by his young son, scours the city for his stolen bicycle, desperately needed for his new job.
Italy, 1948, Vittorio De Sica
“A masterpiece…the most universally praised movie on earth since WWII.” So said The Village Voice at one time about Vittorio De Sica’s heart-wrenching classic, the pinnacle of Italian neo-realism, which finished among the 10 best movies of all time in Sight & Sound’s 1952 and 1962 “greatest films” polls.
