Ladri di biciclette and The Italian Job will be shown at the Cinema Bar by Citylights, St John Street, Valletta, today at 6pm and 8pm respectively.

Ladri di biciclette, directed by Vittorio de Sica, is about an unemployed man, Antonio Ricci (Lamberto Maggiorani), who is elated when he finally finds work hanging posters around war-torn Rome.

His wife, Maria (Lianella Carell), sells the family’s bed linens to retrieve Antonio’s bicycle from the pawnshop so he can take the job. However, disaster strikes when Antonio’s bicycle is stolen, and his new job is doomed unless he can find the thief.

With the help of his lively son, Bruno (Enzo Staiola), Antonio combs the city, growing increasingly desperate for justice.

The Italian Job revolves around a heist in Venice, with Steve (Edward Norton) turning on his partners in crime, killing safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) and keeping all the gold for himself.

The rest of the team, including leader Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg), driver Handsome Rob (Jason Statham), explosives man Left Ear (Mos Def) and tech geek Lyle (Seth Green), vows revenge. They enlist the help of Bridger’s daughter, Stella (Charlize Theron), and plot to recover the gold from Steve’s Los Angeles mansion.
