The Bicyle Thief

January 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Personally, my feeling is that the score to Vittoria De Sica’s Umberto D is one of the few flaws in the film. However, within the heavy-handed, wall to wall score, there are some moments that stand out as sublime. This selection is from the famous scene where Maria the servant-girl arises to make coffee. Listen closely and you can hear how she hums to herself and you can almost hear the stray cat padding softly over the glass windows.

Alessandro Cicognini – Theme for morning routine.
