Vittorio De Sica's memorable ''Umberto D'' seems more sentimental now, but as you stay with it, the small story grows to a most moving climax.
It's hard to think of a more remarkable tribute to the resilience of the human spirit than the one Umberto D. puts on the screen.
One of the great humanist cinema works: a portrayal of age, poverty and simple lives in postwar Rome that is both luminous and heartbreaking.
This simple, almost Chaplinesque story of a man fighting to preserve his dignity is even more moving for its firm grasp of everyday activities.
Heroes like Umberto D. are hard to find, and your life will be better for having met him.
It is said that at one level or another, Chaplin's characters were always asking that we love them. Umberto doesn't care if we love him or not. That is why we love him.
...a picture of a man who has been cast into a dehumanizing vortex, largely because of others' indifference.
Even sentimentality is something that springs naturally from the characters' situations. Umberto has an immense amount of pride despite his impoverished conditions and his attempts to survive aren't accompanied by the usual filmic theatrics.
Umberto D. could have been one of the most depressing movies ever made, but instead it's one of the most heartfelt.
A neo-realist classic that is very likely the inspiration for "Wendy and Lucy". The two make for very interesting watching side-by-side.
Um dos melhores exemplares do neo-realismo italiano, pinta um retrato tocante da miséria do pós-guerra ao mesmo tempo em que, sem qualquer melodrama, cria personagens inesquecíveis em suas dores.
De Sica somehow manages to avert sentimentality and banality, and his simple storytelling leaves a profound and timeless message.
This neorealist masterpiece by master Vittorio de Sica is a deeply heartfelt and unforgettable portrait of a poverty-stricken life in postwar Italy, avoiding any sort of easy sentimentality and needing no effort to make us love and care about its struggling character.
the realism and simplicity of this film is penetrating. probably even better than de sica's slightly more well known film "bicycle thieves", umberto just has a charm that helps you resonate with his plight. the end of the film comes upon us a bit too abruptly, but the rest of the film is nearly perfect.
Ah, Italian Neorealism. This film was alright. The bit with the dog at the end nearly killed me. Ravage a human monstrously and I will be fine. Injure a dog, and I'm coming after your blood....
Director Vittorio De Sica and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini, show again their good sense and total mastery over pathos. Characters of exemplary moral standards who find themselves unjustly trapped inside a somber existence, condemned to indifference and oblivion.
It's been quite a long time since I saw a film so beautiful, involving and heartbreaking. I'm not embarrassed to say I broke into tears at the finale. What a splendid achievement.
