Bicycle Thieves, DVD


A key film in what became known as the Italian neorealist movement, director Vittorio De Sica's drama won the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1949.

It tells the story of Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani), a working-class Italian, living just above the poverty line.

When he finally lands a job as a bill-sticker, his happiness is short-lived as his bicycle, essential for the promised job, is stolen.

With his small son, Bruno (Enzo Staiola), he tramps the city in a desperate search for the precious bike.
