Shoeshine Film Poster


Oscar winning foreign drama inspired by the real stories of those struggling to overcome the oppressive forces of a corrupt and ineffective political system in postwar Rome. Giuseppe (Rinaldo Smordoni) and Pasquale (Franco Interlenghi) work on the street, where they shine the shoes of American troops. They dream of a better life, seeking solace in a horse that they ride to escape their harsh reality. When the boys are implicated in a petty crime, they are punished by the society that has robbed them of their innocence, resulting in tragic consequences.
