The Bicycle Thief (1948): Vittorio De Sica's Oscar-winning drama introduced the world to a new type of filmmaking: shot on location, using non-professional actors, and telling stories of real, hardscrabble life. A father, a son, a desperate moment: a heart-wrenching masterpiece of mood and melodrama - and a deeply influential film.
