Reviews
Mine: Heart wrenching film. One of those movies that I really wish was in english. A tragedy of Greek proportions.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Simple, realistic tale of workingman whose job depends on his bicycle, and the shattering week he spends with his young son after it is stolen. An honest, beautiful film that deservedly earned a special Academy Award (before foreign films had a category of their own); one of the all-time classics.
