Pasquale e Giuseppe lavorano come lustrascarpe sui marciapiedi di Via Veneto a Roma. Appena possono corrono a Villa Borghese e con 300 lire affittano un cavallo bianco chiamato Bersagliere e lo cavalcano in due. Con la complicità di Attilio, il fratello più grande di Giuseppe, i due si trovano coinvolti senza volerlo in un furto a casa di una chiromante, alla quale volevano rivendere delle coperte sotto commissione del panza (uomo che si "occupava" di rivendere oggetti illegalmente).

Shoeshine (1946) [Masters of Cinema] [RE-UP]

Prima di essere arrestati e portati in carcere riescono a realizzare il loro sogno: comprare Bersagliere. Il cavallo sarà affidato alle cure di uno stalliere. I ragazzi vengono rinchiusi in celle diverse e sperimentano l'inganno e la vendetta. Il commissario e il direttore del carcere fanno credere a Pasquale che Giuseppe verrà frustato se lui non rivelerà i nomi dei complici del furto presso la chiromante. Pasquale cadrà nel tranello e parlerà. Quando Giuseppe, ignorando il motivo per cui lo ha fatto, verrà a sapere che l'amico ha fatto il nome del fratello, decide di vendicarsi e rivela a Staffera, l'assistente del direttore, che nella cella di Pasquale è nascosta una lima. Gli eventi precipitano: durante una proiezione cinematografica, Giuseppe e il suo compagno di cella Villa Literno fuggono dal carcere.

Pasquale, per la paura di perdere Bersagliere, rivela a Staffera dove sono i due evasi e lo conduce alla stalla dove è custodito il cavallo. Su un ponticello nei pressi della stalla, Pasquale affronta Giuseppe in sella a Bersagliere. Arcangeli scappa, Giuseppe scende dal cavallo e Pasquale comincia a frustarlo, ma Giuseppe inciampa, cade dalla spalletta del ponte e muore. Pasquale, rinsavitosi dalla smania di vendetta, non potrà fare altro che piangere disperato l'amico, urlando al mondo il suo dolore: "Che ho fatto?"; mentre il cavallo si allontana nella notte.

Sciuscià è un film del 1946 diretto da Vittorio De Sica, è considerato uno dei capolavori del neorealismo italiano. Tratta tematiche legate ai bambini e alla difficile vita che sono costretti a portare avanti per sopravvivere al complicato dopoguerra. Sciuscià è un termine dialettale napoletano ora in disuso che sta ad indicare i lustrascarpe del dopoguerra (dall'inglese shoe-shine).

At a track near Rome, shoeshine boys are watching horses run. Two of the boys Pasquale, an orphan, and Giuseppe, his younger friend are riding. The pair have been saving to buy a horse of their own to ride… The boys meet Attilio, Giuse's much older brother, and his shady friend at a boat on the Tiber. In return for a commission, the boys agree to deliver black market goods to a fortune-teller. Once the woman has paid, Attilio's gang suddenly arrives.

With a payoff from Attilio, the boys are able to make the final payment and stable their horse in Trastevere over the river… The fortune-teller identifies Pasqua and Giuse. Held at an overcrowded boys' prison, they are separated. Giuse falls under the influence of an older lad in his cell, Arcangeli.

Directed by Vittorio De Sica (Bicycle Thieves, Umberto D), Shoeshine was filmed on location in postwar Rome using non-professional actors. It was inspired by the real stories of those struggling to overcome the oppressive forces of a corrupt and ineffective political system.

De Sica’s film depicts the troubled lives of two young boys caught up in the chaos of a world plagued by poverty and unemployment. Giuseppe (Rinaldo Smordoni) and Pasquale (Franco Interlenghi) work on the street, where they shine the shoes of American troops. They dream of a better life, seeking solace in a horse that they ride to escape their harsh reality. When the boys are implicated in a petty crime, they are punished by the society that has robbed them of their innocence, resulting in tragic consequences.

Shoeshine is widely regarded as one of the finest films to have emerged from the Italian neorealist cinema. It was also the first foreign film to receive an Oscar. “The high quality of this motion picture,” noted the Academy, “brought to eloquent life in a country scarred by war, is proof to the world that the creative spirit can triumph over adversity.” On the film’s 60th anniversary, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Shoeshine for the first time on DVD in the UK.
