BFI Southbank introduction:
A landmark of neo-realism – and an Oscar®-winner – this tells of two boys who survive by shining shoes but dream of buying a horse; with this in mind, they agree to a shady deal with some older boys, but things go wrong... De Sica elicits robust, utterly plausible performances from his cast while showing the chaos and poverty of post-war Italy in harrowing detail.
Here (and above) is the trailer.
