REAL GEM - A MUST WATCH

???The Bicycle thieves??? is the movie which motivated the great Satyajit Ray to become a director.

Widely considered as one of the best movies ever made the Bicycle thieves ushered the era of Italian Neo-Realism which had significant and everlasting effect on subsequent films of the genre. The Hindi movie "Do Bigha Zamin" comes to my mind which has parallel takes on the effects of poverty and helplessness faced by a family.

Don't expect to be happy...the movie has a sad ending...In immediate post WW-II period when Italy was suffering and slowly trying to build up its war ravage...

The Hindi movie "Do Bigha Zamin" comes to my mind which has parallel takes on the effects of poverty and helplessness faced by a family.

Don't expect to be happy...the movie has a sad ending...In immediate post WW-II period when Italy was suffering and slowly trying to build up its war ravaged country, the protagonist gets a job pasting posters all over the city of Rome...this is a meager job but somehow this will enable him to feed his family comprising of wife and son. The only requirement for taking up the job is a bicycle which he eventually purchases after his wife sells their mattresses.

He goes around the city of Rome on his bicycle pasting posters on sidewalks when his bicycle gets stolen. Desperate in the face of losing his job and only source of income the protagonist and his son search the whole of Rome for their bicycle. They eventually identify the thieves but are not able to arrest him as the thieves??? neighbors eventually threaten him away.

Filled with despair he decides to steal a bicycle from the ones parked near a stadium, is eventually caught and beaten by the crowd. The owner of the bicycle perhaps taking pity on his young son decides not to press any charges.

The protagonist and his son eventually head back to their home, penniless, hungry and facing a bleak future.

Believe me, this movie will move you to tears and if you are married and have kids this will surely tear your heart apart. You would wish that the Bicycle thieves would have ended on a happy note, that some better avenue would have opened towards the end for the poor man but then this is Italian cinema minus the silver lining.

Bicycle Thieves is a must watch. It???s a true classic and real gem.
Don't just rent it...buy the DVD, watch the movie and thank the almighty that you don't have to face such hardships in your life.

You can't miss this!!!

This is definitely one of the finest movie ever produced.The movie portrays the scenario in Europe during economic depression. The movie revolves around a poor man searching the streets of Rome for his stolen bicycle, which he needs to be able to work. In the end, in desperation he steals another bicycle and gets beaten by mob. The actor has brilliantly portrayed the emotions and helplessness of a man.
