Umberto D.: The Criterion Collection

Shot on location with a cast of nonprofessional actors, Vittorio De Sica's neorealist masterpiece follows Umberto D., an elderly pensioner, as he struggles to make ends meet during Italy's postwar economic boom. Alone except for his dog, Flike, Umberto strives to maintain his dignity while trying to survive in a city where traditional human kindness seems to have lost out to the f-rces of modernization. Umberto's simple quest to fulfill the most fundamental human needs - food, shelter, companionship - is one of the most heartbreaking stories ever filmed and an essential classic of world cinema.
