My Favs

Life is Beautiful

An unforgettable fable that proves love, family and imagination conquer all. A Jewish man has a wonderful romance with the help of his humour, but must use that same quality to protect his son in a Nazi death camp This would be unbearable without Benigni's comic grace and humanity. The film handles a profoundly serious subject with a light touch, devoid of the moralistic or syrupy tone. In the battle against barbarism, Benigni is saying, there are also the weapons of joy and imagination. The film moved me so much, that I would qualify it one of the best films I have seen on the WW2.
