Films as simple as Ladri Di Biciclette simply aren’t made anymore. And so, I find it amusing for me to sit back and watch a picture that will not try to fool me in any way. If anything, it leaves me entirely rooting for the main character spoiler

. Even though I wouldn’t normally consider this film as my cup of tea, it has fulfilled my demands as a film viewer in regards to acting, emotions, character development, drama and camerawork. In a nutshell, this film is straightforward, truthful and quite stirring.

You'll need some anti-depressants after that, i guarantee it. Great flick.

Quintessence of Italian Neorealist Cinema: brilliant portrait of post-war Italy (for post-war Germany see Rosselini's "Germania Anno Zero" (1948) of the same of year) and the best example of the drama that could occur in everyday situations, definitely worthy of a movie camera.

Swift Variation

Very moving father-son relationship, particularly in that last scene. Even though I knew the ending beforehand, it still struck a chord.

One of the great things about this film is the fact that it's so simple, yet it compels you to keep watching.
