Bicycle thief  (DVD ITALIAN THIEF)

In post-World War II Rome, Antonio’s  bicycle is essential to his family’s survival. Everyone is struggling to get by; Antonio desperately needs a job to support his family.   He finds that job- putting up posters for American movies. He goes from one site to another with his bicycle.  When it is stolen, he and his son Bruno track the thief all over Rome, but to no avail.  In a moment of desperation, he steals someone else’s bicycle but he gets caught and is shamed in Bruno’s eyes.
