“UMBERTO D.”

 

The Italian Neo-realist masterpiece, directed by Vittorio de Sica, is suitable for all ages and runs 1 hour, 29 minutes.  Following the film there will be a brief discussion.

 

Review from IMDb:  This is storytelling at its simplest and most beautiful. An old man – his sole companion, a dog – tries to survive on a fixed, tight income while being mistreated by his landlady. De Sica brilliantly captures the despair of his protagonist and makes this film unforgettably powerful. It deserves to be seen by everyone, not just those who enjoy foreign-language films.  “Unberto D” truly is one of the greatest films ever made.
