It may seem a little cliche, but Bicycle Thieves is genuinely one of the best and most beautiful examples of the Italian Neorealism Movement. De Sica brings out heartbreaking performances from a cast of mostly non-actors, exploring the grief and strife of a country ravaged by war. This film is essential viewing for any film lover.
