The definitive statement of the Neorealist movement, the film follows Antonio Ricci and his son, as they walk the streets of Rome in search of Ricci’s stolen bicycle, necessary for him to keep his job amidst the impoverished post-WWII landscape. It culminates in one of the most soul-crushing endings ever put to film.
