Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Bicycle-Thieves-2

Bicycle Thieves screening 7.30pm on Friday 16th June

For the fifth year running Balerno Village Screen is partnering with the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling to bring you a night of cycling related films. The evening will start with two shorts followed by the main feature.

We start with The Man Who Lived on His Bike. It’s difficult to imagine someone living, eating, sleeping and438103014_1280x960 even washing clothes on a bicycle for over a year. But that’s exactly what French artist and copyeditor Guillaume Blanchet from Montreal has done. He even cooked his own food and flirted with women, while perched on the narrow bicycle seat. This 3 minute film depicts Blanchet’s life on the bicycle.

Mat Ilic Everesting Swains Vimeo still_0Our second short is Everesting Swain’s The Ascent, a short film documenting Mat Ilic’s attempt to Everest the notorious Swain’s Lane in North London.

Our main feature is Bicycle Thieves (in Italian with subtitles)- this landmark Italian neorealist drama became one of the best-known and most widely acclaimed European movies, including a special Academy Award as “most outstanding foreign film” seven years before that Oscar category existed. Lamberto Maggiorani plays Antonio, an unemployed man who finds a coveted job that requires a bicycle. When it is stolen on his first day of work, Antonio and his young son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) begin a frantic search, learning valuable lessons along the way.

One of the great, perfect crystalisations of a specific point in time into a particular film, this is one of the greatest cinematic experiences ever.  David Parkinson, Empire
