La Vita E Bella! What a beautiful film it is too. What
begins as a Chaplinesque love story turns into a war drama as Italian Jew, Guido Orifice (Roberto Benigni) and his son, Joshua, are taken to a concentration camp, where Guido, protecting his
son from the horrors there, convinces him that it's all a game.
I put off watching this movie for so long due to some
critics labelling it overly sentimental or stating that it made light of serious subject matter, but I thought it was a joy to watch, all due to the flamboyant & charismatic performance
It's a heartwarming, heartbreaking and heart-string
pulling fable of fantasia which left a few tears welling in my eyes. Life is beautiful and so is this movie.
