That meant that I found The Bicycle Thief to be a very slow film and that the effect it would have made upon its original release did not leave the same precise mark on me. I enjoyed The Bicycle Thief, but not precisely as much as everyone else did mainly because the slow pace of the film made the drama somewhat distant from me at times and left the effect of it all less consistent with me than it seems to be with everyone else. Also, I can't say that I was fully aware of the cultural relevance of the film due to not understanding too much about Italian culture outside of what films I had seen. Most Italian films I had learned about their culture came from Roberto Benigni's La Vita e Bella or Michael Radford's Il Postino: The Postman. Either way I didn't understand too much about the cultural meaning of the film and was only able to take it on for its personal value. I could be looking too much into it, but I felt like there was cultural significance to the film that I didn't understand as much as the people who lived through that time or live in Italy.The Bicycle Thief nevertheless remained a touching film. The surface concept of it was very interesting because of the way that it depicted a bike being at the heart of so much. A bicycle is what the protagonist Antonio Ricci requires to raise money as a means of feeding his family, and it is what they pawn much of their possessions to raise money for. In short, the bicycle is what the family needs to survive. It maintains all of their hopes and dreams, and so when it is stolen in a moment of selfish crime, that is the future of an entire family being snatched out from under them. The Bicycle Thief is a film which challenges viewers to consider precisely how major the effect of committing a minor crime can be, and it does so with its bare basic concept on the surface but later makes it even better as it gets into an exploration of it. The thing which is beautiful about the film is its nihilism. It is never optimistic about the harsh reality of the world for the lower class victims of an unfair society, and it explains this by depicting the struggles of such people on a level of both class and emotional turmoil, the latter of which is explained through the relationship between Antonio Ricci and his son Bruno. The Bicycle Thief may explore its drama on a subtle level which may not be easy for every viewer to grasp, but those who can should truly be able to appreciate the heartfelt sentimental value of The Bicycle Thief. The story is an admirable one because once viewers get a feel and an understanding for the nihilistic melancholy of the film. The Bicycle Thief has a beautiful atmosphere to it which makes it a touching film if viewers can really embrace what is happening, so its gradually burning drama seems to end up being sensible.The Bicycle Thief is a very old fashioned film because it maintains the same style of filmmaking that many films of the era did which proves to be the source of any of the flaws in the film, in particular the aforementioned slow pace of the film. But it also establishes a lot of positive aspects for the film such as beautiful cinematography which works well to capture the excellent production design and scenery of the film. It captures the large spectacle of the surroundings by showing the large world around the characters, and it does help to give viewers an understanding of everything that is happening. Everything in The Bicycle Thief looks and feels appropriate.And the acting in The Bicycle Thief is very strong as well.Lamberto Maggiorani is spot on in the leading role in The Bicycle Thief. He is handed a great character as written by Vittorio De Sica and acts it out so organically with natural humanity and compelling sympathy. He is good at conveying the stress of a struggling lower class person as well as a father in The Bicycle Thief which is part of what establishes the touching edge of the material. Although it is his debut as an actor, Lamberto Maggiorani easily makes himself a compelling lead in The Bicycle Thief. A lot of the importance rests on how he establishes the father-son relationship that he shares with the character portrayed by Enzo Staiola as well as how he conveys the love that he maintains for his family and why he is fighting so hard to a simply bicycle, and it is just too admirable. First time actor Lamberto Maggiorani does an excellent job in The Bicycle Thief because he takes on the role of a determined and troubled father with easy passion, and it ties the heart of the story together really well.Enzo Staiola is also great in The Bicycle Thief. In his youth, he is able to handle the edge of the story really well and act alongside Lamberto Maggiorani very finely. He is thoroughly sympathetic and compelling in the role without challenge thanks to his natural juvenile charm, so he enhances the emotional qualities of the film.So while The Bicycle Thief maintains the same slow pace you might expect from such an old film with a classical style, the touching story and detailed script combined with the passionate cast of the film make it a memorable and emotionally worthy experience as a film.

But I was so bored during this movie. Granted, musicals aren't necessarily my favorite genre, but I feel like this is a movie that wanted me to like it a lot and maybe that yearning for admiration tainted the process since it comes across as insincere.
