The Bicycle Thief/Bicycle Thieves

Dir. Vittorio DeSica (1948). The most universally praised movie produced anywhere on planet earth during the first decade after World War II, Vittorio De Sica’s 1948 neo-realist masterpiece is an allegory at once timeless and topical—the epitome of movies as a popular modernism. The story of a man’s search for his livelihood seems now less a slice of life than the transposition of a Kafka story to the labyrinth of postwar II Rome.
