Aroview: A huge sentimental favourite about a man whose chance at meaningful labour is taken from him when his precious bicycle is stolen from him. Though not a silent film, it's a model of visual storytelling.
0 star (Not rated) Hardly sentimental this is a devastating expose of post-war hardship and Lear-tragedy. Its realism makes it hard to believe it was acted and the hopelessness of man's inhumanity to man is crushing. De Sica's direction is magnificent.~rakau
