“One of the greatest films of all time.” – Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
Hailed around the world as one of the greatest movies ever made, the Oscar-winning Bicycle Thieves, directed by Vittorio De Sica, defined an era in cinema. In postwar Rome, a man is on his first day of a new job that offers hope of salvation for his family, when his bicycle, which he needs for his work, is stolen. With his young son in tow, he sets off to track down the thief. Simple in construction and profoundly rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodies the greatest strengths of the Italian neorealist movement: emotional clarity, social rectitude, and unswerving honesty.
