Bicycle Thieves Blu-Ray (Bicycle Thief)

All products on the Atomic Movies website are marked with the relevant region coding

Blu-Ray: All titles are Region B (Aust/NZ/UK) or Region All.

What is Region Coding?

A security system introduced to DVD at the request of Hollywood's major studios to ensure that DVDs released and sold in one region will not play on DVD machines in other regions. Movie distributors therefore maintain control over release dates of their films, as well as enabling discs to be produced that conform to different censorship laws, language and subtitle requirements. When a DVD disc is manufactured, a region code is applied at the authoring stage such that the final disc will play only on those players distributed in the designated world region.

There are 6 regions throughout the world:

Region 1 - Canada, United States and its Territories 
Region 2 - Japan, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East
Region 3 - Southeast Asia and East Asia
Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central and South America 
Region 5 - Indian Subcontinent, Former Soviet Union and Africa 
Region 6 - China

Many newer DVD players are already set to All Region and can play DVDs from any region. It is also possible to unlock many players and we may be able to help if you email with the make & model of your player.

Some studios are now releasing their titles as All Region or Dual Region, this information is given on each listing, these titles will play in Australian dvd players however may not play in Game consoles outside the country of the original issue.

If you have any doubt of about the suitability of the title you are intending to purchase please contact us for further information as refunds or exchanges are not available for incorrect items once the plastic seal has been breached.

Italian master Vittorio De Sica's Bicycle Thieves is a harrowing portrait of loss and deprivation in post-war Rome, reflecting a stark era of desperation and survival. It is a time where owning a bicycle can mean the difference between having a job and providing for one's family or forever going hungry.

De Sica combined with long-time collaborator, writer Cesare Zavattini, to produce a potent mix of real life detail, detective story and poetic melodrama as dedicated father Antonio Ricci (Lamberto Maggiorani) and his devoted son Bruno (Enzo Staiota) roam the streets of the capital in search of a stolen bicycle which signifies hope, optimism and will surely deliver them from the abject poverty they currently face.

Vividly shot on location in the streets of Rome using non-professional actors, bringing great prominence to the Italian neorealist film movement, Bicycle Thieves was awarded an honorary Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1950.
