BICYCLE THIEVES
LADRI DI BICICLETTE

TWO WOMEN
LA CIOCIARA
1960, Surf Film, 100 min, Italy, Dir: Vittorio De Sica

Sophia Loren delivers a career-defining performance as a mother struggling to protect her daughter on a journey through war-ravaged Italy, a role that won her an Oscar for Best Actress - the first ever awarded for a non-English-language performance. This Italian gem - superbly crafted by neorealist master De Sica - is a devastating and at times shocking portrait of a family on a quest to escape bomb-battered World War II Rome. Jean-Paul Belmondo co-stars as Loren’s young, intellectual love interest. In Italian with English subtitles.
