Сlassic Italian film “The Bicycle Thieves”, with English subtitles
Hello Classic film buffs,
This Thursday evening we will watch the classic Italian film “The Bicycle Thieves”, with English subtitles, of course. We hope to start at 7:30, in Shane’s apartment. I have attached the address and a map for one or two who may not know where.
We will have a five minute description and history of the film beforehand, and a discussion afterward where you must answer a three page exam on the basic philosophy and themes. You must have an intimate knowledge of the main actors, director and producer, and various additional trivia, as appropriate. And I hope you understand that this is a joke! Smile Just come and enjoy.
It is not a very long film, I think about on hour and thirty minutes. It ranked 33 on the “Sight and Sound Top 250 Films,” which is a listing by industry professionals.
You can suggest other films for the future and our panel of experts will consider them. All the better if they are from a classic film list. If they are from your own classic film list, we will still consider them (we are a very democratic bunch), but you will have to argue your case!
