Summary
  • "Routinely voted one of the greatest films of all time, revered as one of the foundation stones of Italian neorealism, it is a simple, powerful film about a man who needs a job." - Cf. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times (March 19, 1999)
  • "The Bicycle Thief is in truth an elegantly structured film that took years of prepartion. Integral to its grace and mood are Carlo Montuori's superb, supple camera work and Alessandro Cicognini's mesmerizing score, at once stately and possessing an emotional fullness that Italian movies sustain best." - Cf. Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times (Feb. 5, 1999)
