"Italian neorealism is a national film movement characterized by stories set amongst the poor and the working class, filmed on location, frequently using non professional actors. Italian neorealism films mostly contend with the difficult economic and moral conditions of post World War II Italy, representing changes in the Italian psyche and conditions of everyday life, including poverty, oppression, injustice, and desperation." - Wikipedia
