ENGLISH SYNOPSIS: A masterpiece of Italian filmmaking and foundation stone of the neorealist film movement, Vittorio De Sica's "Ladri di bicicette - The bicycle thief" is a harrowing portrait of loss and depravation in post-war rome. Awarded an honorary Oscar for Best Foreign Film, and regularly voted one of the greatest film of all time, Ladri di biciclette - the bicycle thief is a simple, powerful movie about a man who needs a job. Like the great neoralist film that preceded it, Roberto Rosellini's "roma citta`aperta - Rome openc city". Ladri di biciclette - the bicycle thief was shot on location in the streets of Rome using non=professional actors, giving chilling authencticity to the story of a man's desperate bid to provide for his family. De Sica combined with long-time collaborator, writer Cesare Zavattini (Miracolo a Milano - Miracle in Milan, Umberto D),to produce a potent mix of real life detail, detective story and poetic melodrama as a father (Lamberto Maggiorani) and his devoted son (Enzo Staiola) roam the streets of the capital in search of the bicycle thief that will deliver them from poverty.
