Synopsis

Italian drama co-written and directed by Vittorio De Sica which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1949. The film tells the story of Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani), a working-class Italian living just above the poverty line in Rome. Things begin to look up for Antonio when he finally lands a job as a bill-sticker, although his happiness is short-lived as his bicycle, which is essential for the promised job, is stolen. With his family's future in the balance, Antonio and his son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) set off on a journey across the city in a desperate bid to find those responsible and reclaim the precious bike.
