Plot Synopsis:

Vittorio De Sica’s enchantingly playful neorealist fairy tale celebrating the nobility of everyday people—now on home video
Renowned filmmaker VITTORIO DE SICA followed up his international triumph Bicycle Thieves with this enchantingly playful neorealist fairy tale, in which he combines his celebrated slice-of-life poetry with flights of graceful comedy and storybook fantasy. On the outskirts of Milan, a band of vagabonds work together to form a shantytown. When it is discovered that the land they occupy contains oil, however, it’s up to the cherubic orphan Totò (Un ladro in paradiso’s FRANCESCO GOLISANO)—with some divine help—to save their community from greedy developers. Tipping their hats to the imaginative whimsy of Charles Chaplin and René Clair, De Sica and screenwriter CESARE ZAVATTINI (Umberto D.), adapting his own novel, craft a bighearted ode to the nobility of everyday people.
