Bicycle Thieves (1948)

Director: Vittorio De Sica

Writers: Cesare Zavattini, Suso D’Amico, Vittorio De Sica, Oreste Biancoli, Adolfo Franci, & Gerardo Guerrieri

(Based on a novel by Luigi Bartolini)

Very good!  Simple but effective.  Surprised at the amount of credited writers.  Pee Wee’s Big Adventure was definitely inspired by this right?  Don’t roll your eyes at watching a black and white Italian film from the 40s.  One of those older films that really holds up over time.  A heartbreaking film.  Definitely watch!
