Umberto D (20-Jan-1952)|
Director: Vittorio De Sica
Writer: Cesare Zavattini
Music: Alessandro Cicognini

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.
