“You live and you suffer. To hell with it. You want a pizza?”
— Antonio Ricci, The Bicycle Thieves, 1948, Italy. Portrayed by Lamberto Maggiorani. Foreign Film Academy Award 1949. Director Vittorio de Sica, 50 Greatest Films of All Time – British Film Institute
Roger Ebert Review:
… Such films stand outside time. A man loves his family and wants to protect and support them. Society makes it difficult. Who cannot identify with that?
