SYNOPSIS

‘Hailed as one of the greatest movies ever made, Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves (1948) defined an era in cinema. In poverty-stricken postwar Rome, a man is on his first day of a new job—which offers the hope of salvation for his desperate family—when his bicycle, which he needs for work, is stolen. With his young son in tow, he sets out to track down the thief. Simply constructed and rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodies the greatest strengths of Italian neorealism: emotional clarity, social rectitude, and brutal honesty.’ Gray Art Gallery, New York
