BI­CY­CLE THIEVES

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Vit­to­rio De Sica's 1948 Ital­ian ne­o­re­al­ist mas­ter­piece, about a fa­ther who re­quires a bi­cy­cle for in­come and one day finds it stolen, re­mains as deep and pow­er­ful as ever. The pho­tog­ra­phy is beau­ti­ful and the story is sym­pa­thetic to the fa­ther but non­judg­men­tal of his ac­tion as he, stripped of his pride, dis­cov­ers how far he will go to pro­tect a steady job in a cruel and un­fair world. Screens as part of the Auteurs se­ries. Not rated. 93 min­utes. In Ital­ian with sub­ti­tles. Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts. (Robert Ker)
