Synopsis

Unemployed Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani) and is young son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) embark on a frantic search when his bicycle is stolen on the first day of a new job. This simple structure is used to illustrate the bond between father and son as well as the broader social problems facing post-war Italy. The neorealist drama, mixing actors and non-actors, was awarded a special Academy Award seven years before the category of best foreign film existed. With subtitles.
