Bicycle Thieves

The film is about people who steal bicycles. That’s why it’s called Bicycle Thieves, not Bicycle Thief - which would be the more Hollywood title as the plot of the film follows one guy in his pursuit to reclaim his stolen bike - but the intent of the film is not to tell that man’s story, it’s to draw a larger picture about those who steal bikes. What kind of a person steals bicycles? This film shows us two different, yet similar people who do that. Moreover, we don’t know we’re getting the answer to that question until the end. Really nice.
