Apparently this is a very important movie and a touchstone of Italian cinema. All I know it's severely lacking in the Italian knife-wielding maniac department. Still, as far as artsy dramas go, this wasn't half bad. Basically, a guy gets his bike stolen and spends the rest of the movie trying to find it. There's probably some brainy sub-text about life and finding meaning in a cold, uncaring world but I was too stupid to pick up on that.
