BICYCLE THIEVES (BLU RAY)
Italian master Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief is a harrowing portrait of loss and deprivation in post-war Rome, reflecting a stark era of desperation and survival. It is a time where owning a bicycle can mean the difference between having a job and providing for one's family or forever going hungry.
Vividly shot on location in the streets of Rome using non-professional actors, bringing great prominence to the Italian neorealist film movement, The Bicycle Thief was awarded an honorary Oscar® for Best Foreign Film in 1950. Special features include the documentary 'That's Life' about Vittorio De Sica and exclusive to this Blu Ray release: 'Cesare Zavattini' - a feature-length documentary on screenwriter, novelist, critic and long time De Sica collaborator.
