The troubled lives of Giuseppe (Rinaldo Smordoni) and Pasquale (Franco Interlenghi)intersect as they ingeniously traverse the omnipresent terrain ofpoverty and unemployment in post-war Rome. Together they forge a livingon the street, shining the shoes of American troops, surviving on thehope and optimism of a better life ahead of them. Their one true vestigeof escape is a horse they dream of one day owning. But the harshness oftheir reality is never far away and it is not long before theirmischief catches up with them, casting a dark and ominous shadow acrosstheir future.Winner of the inaugural Foreign Language OscarÂ® in 1948, Shoeshine is thetale of two irrepressible boys surrounded by the stifling oppression ofa corrupt and ineffectual political system. A celebrated classic fromcinema great Vittorio De Sicca (The Bicycle Thief), it remains one of the finest examples of neorealist filmmaking, drawing greatly from the spirit of the era.
