Miracle in Milan  (1951)

In this Italian neorealist fairy tale, young orphan Totò turns a group of misfits into an inclusive community with the help of an optimistic outlook and a magic dove. When the discovery of oil in the town disrupts their happy existence, they must find a way to regain their freedom. The followup to director Vittorio De Sica’s classic The Bicycle Thief, this whimsical satire won the 1951 Cannes Festival Grand Prize.

35mm, 100 min, Italian with English subtitles.  Director: Vittorio De Sica.
