Critics Reviews

TV Guide
One of the greatest films of all time and one of the handful of masterpieces to emerge from the Italian neo-realist period, Umberto D is as cerebral as it is emotional, as bleak as it is warm.

Variety
The ending is happy, but the general effect of the film is disturbing, so compelling is De Sica's description of a man's solitude.
