The BEST film i've ever seen. Excellent just excellent, you will NOT be disappointed :)

Amazon.co.uk 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.

My other favourite is completely different.

Requiem for a Dream

Another film I really like that is similar in genre (other than setting) and such to this is Reign Over Me.

Watch it closely because you'll be glad you watched it but you'll never want to watch it again ha ha

Disagree. I've watched it a bunch of times.

Requiem is probably Aranaofsky's most brutal film, not a movie to watch with mother! This represents the 'body' in his mind, body, soul trilogy. 'Pi' being the mind, and 'The Fountain' being the soul.

Ass to Ass!!!

Ass to Ass alone makes it "not one to watch with mother".

Life is Beautiful though, definately get family and friends to watch it, as long as they're not the type to keep moaning about subtitles and ask you to rewind because they "couldn't read it in time". Arg!
#24
Is it a sub-titled film?
#25
oops!
#26
Yeah it's subtitled :)
#27
Thank you. Can't wait to watch it. Bril price
