However prone to trite pet tricks, this is nevertheless a crucifying tear-bath, one of the small handful of films about the aged that matter.

One of those modest masterpieces that defined Italian neorealism, Umberto D. trades in pathos of the Chaplin variety, which means that the figure of the poor and decent man—seemingly out-of-time—must be counterbalanced by a young and naive girl. The movie expresses itself through contrasts; it’s so sad because parts of it are so funny, and so touching because it is, at times, very cruel.

Every bit as honest and observant a pinnacle of the Italian neorealist movement as de Sica’s more frequently screened Bicycle Thieves, this study of a retired civil servant facing economic ruin with only his loyal dog for company seems no less potent or impassioned today than it did 60-odd years ago.
