"First viewing - July 25th Meh. For some reason I never fully connected with the characters & as a result the film seemed to drag along. The acting is good, the story is decent, but I never got very excited about it. In fact, I started falling asleep toward the end (though that may have just been because I was tired rather than the film's fault). So while it was neat to check out this little film I otherwise wouldn't have heard of, I can't say it's my taste or that I'd watch it again. I can say "

" NETFLIX 20.2 Alun kuvien nopeus toistuu ainakin kerran elokuvan aikana, poikien päästessä vapauteen, tapahtuu nopea – intron hevoskohtauksen kaltainen montaasi, eli leikkaussarja – poikien juostessa pimeässä yössä. Kuva on kuva on kuva on kuva etc. Jo heti alkuun De Sica iskee kaiken voimansa kuviin. Tuo voima ei ole maskuliinista, ei edes älyllistä voimaa, mutta ennen muuta inhimillistä – tosin leikkauksen loogisuuteen vangittua. Se on elämää itse. Älkää pelästykö, k"

"One of the predecessors of the Italian neorealism movement, Vittorio De Sica's Shoeshine stars two young boys who are brought together in friendship, despite the antagonistic conditions of postwar Italy. Societal influence, however, force the two apart, introducing their own hostile feelings that often result in tragedy. Many child actors are used in this film, and all of them do a tremendous job. Though I did not love this as much as The Children Are Watching Us and Bicycle Thief, it is a defin"
