Miracle in Milan

0 Love It
Save it
Made the year after Bicycle Thieves, this is a less coherent but more exuberant film, with De Sica injecting a stiff dose of fantasy into what could have been another plangent tale of gentleman tramps and shantytown life: the humble down-and-outs threatened with eviction by business speculators escape - thanks to angelic intervention - to their reward in heaven. Outrageous sentimentality undercut by outrageous cheek.
