The Bicycle Thief

Post by Storm on Sun May 09, 2010 4:04 am

I guess most of you aren't very into old classics, but yeah, this movie is just great with non-professional actors

"The film tells the story of Antonio Ricci, an unemployed man in the depressed post-World War II economy of Italy. With no money and a wife and two children to support, he is desperate for work. He is delighted to at last get a good job hanging up posters, but on the sole condition that he has a bicycle which must be used for work. He is told unequivocally: "No bicycle, no job." His wife Maria pawns their bedsheets in order to get money to redeem his bicycle from the pawnbroker.Early on in the film, Ricci's coveted bicycle is stolen by a bold young thief who snatches it when he is hanging up a poster. Antonio thinks that the police will take the theft very seriously, but they are not really interested in the petty theft of a bike. The only option is for Antonio and his friends to walk the streets of Rome themselves, looking for the bicycle"

Fucking thieves. They should cut their balls off. My bycicle was locked, yet they somehow BROKE the lock and got away with the bicycle. IN SCHOOL.

Motherfuckers.

when you're bike is stolen you can legaly steal a new one at the most nearby station.

I'd download the film if my bro hadn't filled our download limit over 2 thirds with half a month to go -.-"

My limit has just been reached. Belgian ISP's are dickwads and should be deported to North Korea as the communist anti-liberal pussies they are.

hahaha well i really like the idea behind the movie!
He is a criminal and uses alot of violence..and enjoys it
then he they do tests on him and give him medicine and make him puke when he see violence or anything related to it.. so he is actually fucked up.. and his friends betray him 2...
but in the end he uses violence again but this time he doesnt enjoys it anymore.. so he gets back in his old patern
