Bicycle Thieves

Film Night at Bermondsey Project, presents

Bicycle Thieves

 

Antonio finds a coveted job that requires a bicycle. When the bike is stolen on his first day at work, he and his young son Bruno begin a frantic search for it.

The movie focuses on the relationship between a father and his son

within the larger framework of poverty and unemployment in postwar Italy.

Bicycle Thieves embodies the greatest strengths of the Italian Neo-realist

movement: a simple story focussed on social problems, with a cast of actors

and non-actors. Considered to be one of the greatest films ever made.

Dir: Vittorio De Sica
