A masterclass in emotive cinema. Pretty much impossible not to love that dog.

Touching neorealist Italian film. Nobody gets it easy, but that's just life. Cried pretty much through the entire film, but the part that got to me worst was spoiler

Great Movie. Great social dilemmas: one person at the end of their life, the other starting a new life(baby). This movie covers the gamut of emotions. Very powerful.

The biggest embarrassment and disappointment of a life is when your sincere present (or gift or help) is being refused... This happens a lot to Umberto D.
Sad and realistic movie, one of my favorite Italian films...

Am I the only one bothered by the dog-switching in De Sica's Umberto D.? Flike is normally a black-faced dog, and turns into a white-faced dog in two scenes. While I can well imagine reasons both tragic and benign why that might be, it actually changes one's interpretation of a key scene, and they causes unnecessary confusion. Otherwise, while I do not affect it as much as the director's masterpiece, Bicycle Thieves, the film has a similar feeling. Again, non actors are used to good effect, and we're witness to what impoverished circumstances might force a person into, in this case a struggling pensioner, mistreated by his landlady, and forgotten by the world, though he can't quite bring himself to fall even if it would be easier. But if Bicycle Thieves is a tragedy, I think Umberto D. may be more hopeful. Not that you'd know until the very end, because it's sadder and more pathetic along the way. As a piece of neo-realism, it defies any kind of "movie scripting", that's all. It instead opens a window on real-seeming life, with its unscripted ups, downs and even-keeled routines. Plus, cute trained dog. One of them anyway.
