By March 16, 2021 No Comments

This week, we discuss Bicycle Thieves (Vitorio De Sica, 1949) with Professor Dan Paul from the BYU French and Italian department. In this podcast professor Paul talks about Italian Neorealism, the cultural and historical backgrounds of the era, the meaning of the bike in the film, how the masculinity of the main character is portrayed, how society fails the individual.
