A poor man in pocket but a rich man at heart
- Umberto D. review by PT
Mr Umberto owes money to his landlady , which he must pay in full or be evicted. Basically the plot is the main protagonist trying to come up with the money.
In his efforts though, we see the real meaning of the film, how society shuns the poor and elderly. It is heartbreaking to see him approach some old friends who cannot get away from him quick enough, as if he's a contagious leper.
He has a good heart and cares for the young maid at his lodgings who is pregnant but not sure who the father is. It is his relationship with his dog (Flike) that is the most touching and deeply meaningful though. A great thought provoking film.
