Antonio Ricci has been unemployed for more than two years when he finally gets a job putting up posters. The one condition of employment is that he must have a bicycle - which he is more than happy to pawn the family linen for. After a single day of happy employment, tragedy strikes when the bike is stolen. He and his son set out to find the missing bike...
One of the great, perfect crystalisations of a specific point in time into a particular film, this is one of the greatest cinematic experiences ever.
