I can’t understand how other reviewers see this as a film about the Nazis or the Holocaust. It’s not!!! “Life is Beautiful” is a film about love, optimism, courage and inner strength.
To be honest I can’t get this film out of my thoughts and decided to write this brief review in the hope that I could move on.
“Life is Beautiful” is an unforgettable film. You go through emotions you were surprised could have for a fictional film. The story, although totally implausible, is uplifting and depressing at the same time.
Please see it for yourself. Have a box of tissues handy.
Best film ever seen!!!
One of the best film ever on the holocaust
Though Schindler’s List is the best film on the horror that was the holocaust, Life Is Beautiful (La Vita e Bella in Italian) is way up there. And I enjoyed it. Especially because the film doesn’t completely circle around the concentration camp, just half of it. Half of the film surrounds Guido Orefice (Roberto Benigni won a well deserved best actor Oscar as Guido, along with a second Oscar for best Foreign film as director and writer) as a Italian-Jewish waiter who is in love with a “princess”. This half has more of the comedy than drama, but the second half is melodramatic as Guido has a son now with his princess and they are taken to a concentration camp. But so to shield his son from the horrors, he makes a game the two can play as their ordeal unfolds. Very original, and very well done, with Benigni acting now aa a Italian version of Charlie Chaplin. Excellent all around. A+
