Umberto D
This will be broadcasting on Thursday at 4:44am ET on TCM (Turner Classic Movies).

Has anyone seen this? It's a 10/10, great movie by the master Vittorio De Sica.

Re: Umberto D

One of my favorite of the great De Sica's films. Can't recommend it highly enough. It's beyond wonderful.

Re: Umberto D

Right! And most haven't heard it, but will line up for the next blockbuster regardless of how awful it is.. Even some self-described "movie buffs" might have seen "Bicycle Thieves" (which is great), but never think to myself, "Hmmm, let me see some other of his great works" and he has many.

Re: Umberto D

Thanks for the heads up. I liked this one better than Bicycle Thieves.

Re: Umberto D

You're welcome. I also liked it a little more. Have you seen "Shoeshine" or any other of De Sica's?

Re: Umberto D

Yes I have, and it was excellent. But it's been a long time ago. I viewed the trailer, and recognized one of the prison scenes.

Interesting that it was set in post war Rome. My late father was in Rome in 1944 after it fell to the allies. His unit, the First Special Service Force, was on of the first allied units to enter Rome. I have a picture of him there in 1944.

Isn't this a sad movie?

Re: Umberto D

Yes it is, but I've seen it, and it's a classic. It's rated 8.2 on IMDd.
