Bicycle Thieves
Monday, 29 June 2009

Vittorio de Sica. Italy. 1949. 93 mins. Sub-titles. Black & white. Cert U. New print.

One of the true greats of world cinema, Bicycle Thieves was nearly lost before its painstaking restoration and re-release in 2008. The film’s touching story — a man and his son search for the stolen bike on which the father depends for his new job — reflects the social and political changes in post-War Italy.
