          Twenty-one years ago, she ran away. And twenty-one years later, Carlotta (Marion Cotillard, Inception) is back from the void. But Ismael (Mathieu Amalric, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) has been busy rebuilding a life for himself with Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg, Antichrist)... and working on his next feature film.

          When a teenager in Buenos Aires quietly discovered his religious calling, little did he know that this was the first step that would eventually lead him to the Vatican. It would carry him to become the leader of the Catholic Church, the man who the world knows today as Pope Franc...is. Young Spanish journalist Ana (Silvia Abascal) met Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Dario Grandinetti) at the Papal conclave of 2005. It is here that they began a friendship which would be imbued with the same warmth, good mood and wisdom with which the future Pope will astonish his followers. It is through Ana's eyes that we begin to follow the long, hard and touching journey of Jorge Bergoglio. Father Jorge, as he has always wished to be called, used his position as the archbishop of Buenos Aires as a means to challenge the corruption and abuse of the government dictatorship. Ana was there to see his toughest battles when he gave voice to those who had none; the victims of prostitution, slavery and drug trafficking within the many shantytowns. Their story comes full circle at the conclave of 2013 when a Jesuit priest from South America is elected on the fifth Papal ballot as Pope

          A masterpiece of Italian filmmaking and foundation stone of the neorealist film movement, Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief is a harrowing portrait of loss and depravation in post-war Rome.Awarded an honorary Oscar for Best Foreign Film, and regularly voted one of the greatest... films of all time, The Bicycle Thief is a simple, powerful movie about a man who needs a job. Like the great neo-realist film that preceded it, Roberto Rosselini's Open City, The Bicycle Thief was shot on location in the streets of Rome using non-professional actors, giving chilling authenticity to the story of a man's desperate bid to provide for his family.De Sica combined with long-time collaborator, writer Cesare Zavattini (Miracle in Milan, Umberto D), to produce a potent mix of real life detail, detective story and poetic melodrama as a father (Lamberto Maggiorani) and his devoted son (Enzo Staiola) roam the streets of the capital in search of the bicycle that will deliver them from poverty.
