Umberto D (20-Jan-1952)

Director: Vittorio De Sica

Writer: Cesare Zavattini

Music: Alessandro Cicognini

Producers: Angelo Rizzoli; Vittorio De Sica; Giuseppe Amato

Keywords: Drama, Dog

In postwar Rome, a retired civil servant and his dog Flike struggle to maintain dignity on a government pension that proves increasingly inadequate. Played by a nonprofessional actor to great effect. A masterpiece and quite possibly the best exemplar of Italian neo-realism. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Story.
