Life Is Beautiful (DVD)
Roberto Benigni directs, co-writes and stars in this Oscar-winning Italian drama.
Italian funnyman Roberto Benigni directs himself to Oscar-winning effect as an Italian Jew who tries to shield his son from the horrors of a concentration camp. Making light of the Holocaust is a tricky proposition, but Benigni deftly treads the line between tragedy and comedy.
An eccentric Italian Jew and his son are sent to a concentration camp during WWII, while his wife is held prisoner in another area. Determined to spare his son from having to cope with the horrors around them, he convinces the boy that it is all a game. Starring Roberto Benigni and Nicoletta Braschi.
