Bicycle Thieves (DVD)
Vittorio De Sica's story of a father and son searching for a stolen bicycle on the streets of Rome is a classic of postwar Italian cinema.
The film follows a struggling Roman laborer (real-life factory worker Lamberto Maggiorani) who lands an ever-elusive job, only to have the crucial instrument for that job, his bicycle, stolen.
Bicycle Thieves is an unforgettable plunge into the day-to-day world of the countless citizens struggling to survive during peacetime.
