Considered the last and greatest film of the Italian Neo-Realist movement, Umberto D is a moving portrait of one man's battle for survival in post-war Rome. Retired civil servant Umberto Domenico Ferrari (played by real-life professor Carlo Battisti) faces indifference from all quarters. His pension continually reduced, he struggles to make ends meet and to feed his companion, a terrier named Fike. As he attempts to maintain his dignity in the face of eviction and poverty, he befriends serving girl Maria, who herself faces an uncertain future. Starring non-professional actors and adhering to the gritty reality of post-war Italian cinema, Umberto D is one of the masterpieces of the twentieth-century.
