I picked up a copy of the Sunday Telegraph after noticing that they were giving away a copy of the Vittorio de Sica classic 'Bicycle Thieves'. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't free in the paper and that you have to apply for it but P&P is just £1.99 and you don't need to have the paper or collect tokens or any of that nonsense - you can just order online. Seems like a bargain to me.

This remarkable 1948 drama of desperation and survival in Italy's post-war depression earned a special Oscar for its affecting power. The landmark film defined the Italian Neo-realist approach with its brutal portrayal of post-war life set against the story of love and hope between father and son. The film is often considered one of the masterpieces of 20th century cinema.
