Life is beautiful is a movie that talks about the story of a family facing the horrors of a Nazi camp. It revolves around the interior force of a father, his innate happiness and immagination which help him creating an enjoyable environment for his son and his wife and give them hope for the future. Roberto Benigni is not acting in this movie, he puts himself in it and brings all his life beliefs creating a masterpiece. There is no more to say about the story, this is for sure one of the most… Read Full Review

I love how the writer and the actor came together and made this movie a tragicomedy. It was a pleasure to watch it. You find yourself between masive sadness and truthful happiness.

Life Is Beautiful (La Vita bella) has to be one of my all time favourite movies.
