#5. Umberto D. - Review

Umberto D.Possibly the most sincere of the Italian Neorealist films, Vittorio De Sica’s Umberto D extracts many of the best qualities from the movement and in return presents audiences with an effort of rare genuineness. Taking advantage of the medium’s specific facilities, De Sica capably exhibits his character’s past by simply showing. The little exposition that is given is presented by way of mannerisms, routine, mise en scène. Using images, not words, Umberto D is a classic and a perfect example of cinematic storytelling.

And if for no other reason I love Umberto D because of Flick, the protagonist's Jack Russell terrier and best friend. 

This is Flick: Umberto D. Flick

And this is my Jack Russell Buckley:


Now, can you understand why it was impossible for me not to love Umberto D.?
