> From 1.30pm - TALBOT GALLERY screens ‘Ladri di biciclette'The bicycle thieves – 1948 – Was directed by Vittorio DeSica and based on the novel of the same name by Luigi Bartolini, The Bicycle Thief is one of the greatest neo-realist films. A heart-breakingly simple story that stars Lamberto Maggiorani as the poor man and Enzo Staiola as his son desperately combing a, war-ravaged Rome for a stolen bicycle."If you have seen The Bicycle Thief, but not for years, you will discover that such is its power that it is like seeing it for the first time."
