Bicycle Thieves ★★★★

While this may not be the most entertaining film, it feels personal, honest and completely authentic. The plot develops quickly and simply, really gets you to empathize with this man's ordeal and desperate struggle. The final 15 or so minutes are just masterful. Shows what a lot of us would be thinking and doing if we were in his shoes. The presence of his son throughout, having to witness all of it makes it that much more heartbreaking.

The final shot...
