The Bicycle Thieves (aka Ladri di biciclette) (1948) - ickleReview (DVD)

De Sica's masterpiece of Italian Neo-Realism. Shot in beautiful black and white in post-war Rome, it tells the story of Ricci, a poor bill poster who loses his livelihood when his bike is stolen. He searches all over the city for it, helped by his devoted son, Bruno.

Nugget: a wonderful, sad, but touching film.
