 Bicycles on Parade, Bicycles on Film , Knot Magazine, May 18, 2004
The film's star steals his own bicycle in broad daylight at various spots around the city using different means of removing his lock.
The film reaches a tragically hilarious point when the bike owner pounds on his bike lock with a hammer and chisel in front of a police officer in a van, who drives by in order to order the cameraman to move out of a loading zone.
The final film of the first screening was the highly anticipated 'Warriors: The Bike Race.' Two years ago, cyclists re-created the path taken by gangs in the cult classic film 'The Warriors.' Over 800 cyclists organized into 89 teams to ride from the Bronx to Coney Island in a race.

 Ladri di biciclette / The Bicycle Thief / Bicycle Thieves / 1948 / film review / Italian neo-realism / Vittorio De Sica
It is a film which shows us the best and worst in human nature, informs us about the strength and fallibility of the human spirit under circumstances of extreme penury and moves even the most hard-bitten and cynical of us to tears.
This film answers that question with great force and has no difficulty convincing us that, for one man and his young family, the recovery of the stolen bicycle is the most important thing in the world.
The film’s closing shot of solemn resignation offers a power evocation of the simplest message, one which can be found in virtually all neo-realist cinema: life can be tough, unfair, but we have to make the best of it.

 British film import duty 1948-49
There would be no prospects of selling films in America, the domestic market was unlikely to be able to provide an adequate return on investment, assuming that were forthcoming, and quality might suffer.
There was to be no limit on the number of films that could be brought into the country nor on their earnings but for each of two years from 14 June 1948, only $17m of American films' earnings could be repatriated to the USA.
Thus began a period in which the affairs of the film and cinema industry of the United Kingdom was subject to direct state involvement which generally failed to produce the intended effect.

If you belong to those who dislike the triviality and banality of German film after World War II (like myself) then you should turn to those films who were made in a short period between 1946 and 1949.
They offer several versions of one simple love story in different film form (melodrama or german expressionism) until they come out with the right form (which is this film itself).
Unfortunately questions of film form were not to be touched again until the seventies.

 Amazon.com: DVD: Oliver Twist - Criterion Collection (1951)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
David Lean's 1948 version of Charles Dickens' classic novel begins with a bang: the young hero's pregnant mother fighting her way through a storm, a perfect metaphor for Oliver's difficult road ahead.
A stark but good-looking film shot around some impressive sets, Lean's immortal adaptation is perhaps best known for Alec Guinness's remarkable (and slightly controversial) performance as Fagin, the old mentor to the gang of boy thieves.
Filmed in the shadows of St. Paul's Cathedral, "Oliver Twist" reveals the circuitous, seamy London backwaters of the 19th Century.

Although the film did poorly at the box-office when first released, its critical success and a number of re-releases eventually brought it financial returns.

Similarities with the poetic realist films of the late 1930s are apparent, with the harbour setting closely resembling that of Marcel Carné’s Le Quai des brumes (1938).
By the late 1940s, this style of film, with its oppressive mood and pessimistic outcome, was most definitely going out of fashion.
Whilst the film’s lack of originality counts heavily against it, its shocking film noir ending gives it a truly visceral impact.
