Quotes

Nicola Palumbo: [defending Bicycle Thieves] Mr. Superintendent, the film we saw tonight was... stupendous! Let me talk, let me talk. Through this garbage and this crap, yes sir, we recognise the true enemies of the proletariat: namely, the false defenders of grace, of poetry, of beauty and all the other hypocritical values of your bourgeois culture.

Combination of nostalgia, colors and feeling
16 December 2006 | by janarieoudshoornSee all my reviews

My only all-time favorite, ever since 1979 in Tuschinski. The theme is simple, strong and light, and does not evoke grand historical events but a mere musing on one's own growing up. The use of black/white and sepia flashbacks, changing into into present day colors at a sidewalk drawing, give extra depth to past and present with only a few stroke of the brush. Extra attention has been devoted to sounds and melody: the voices of the main characters reinforce the roles. The melody theme is played simply on one trumpet and echoes the simplicity of the theme. The memory of the move does not fade even after 25 years. I guess it was intended to do so. A very natural composition.
