Oscar winning - and #79 in the list of Top 250 films. A real classic, beautiful film to make you laugh and cry and laugh some more and cry some more. Review
Italy's rubber-faced funnyman Roberto Benigni accomplishes the impossible in his World War II comedy Life Is Beautiful: he shapes a simultaneously hilarious and haunting comedy out of the tragedy of the Holocaust. An international sensation and the most successful foreign language film in US history, the picture also earned director-cowriter-star Benigni Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actor. He plays the Jewish country boy Guido, a madcap romantic in Mussolini's Italy who wins the heart of his sweetheart (Benigni's real-life sweetie, Nicoletta Braschi) and raises a darling son (the adorable Giorgio Cantarini) in the shadow of fascism. When the Nazis ship the men off to a concentration camp in the waning days of the war, Guido is determined to shelter his son from the evils around them and convinces him they're in an elaborate contest to win (of all things) a tank. Guido tirelessly maintains the ruse with comic ingenuity, even as the horrors escalate and the camp's population continues to dwindle--all the more impetus to keep his son safe, secure and, most of all, hidden. Benigni walks a fine line mining comedy from tragedy and his efforts are pure fantasy--he accomplishes feats no man could realistically pull off--both of which have drawn fire from a few critics. Yet for all its wacky humour and inventive gags, Life Is Beautiful is a moving and poignant tale of one father's sacrifice to save not just his young son's life but his innocence in the face of one of the most evil acts ever perpetrated by the human race. --Sean Axmaker

A fantastic film, and a great price too
Studied it as University, its so brilliant :)
One of best films ever made imo. If youve got a relative who like films I think this would be a superb stocking filler
Quite possibly, the most important film to be watched....heat added although i've had this for years....Folks, just buy it!
A true masterpiece, and a total bargain at this price.
this needs a +1
Without a doubt one of the best films ever made. No exaggeration. If you haven't seen it or haven't heard of it, pick it up. It will be the best three pounds you ever spend.
