Conclusion: I'm so glad I finally got around to watching 'Life is Beautiful!' Now I understand what all the fuss is about. The world of film is often filled with pessimistic characters, so it's nice to see an optimist who really can make a difference. The way Guido views the world helps more than just him.
Conclusion: Like little Giosuè in Life is Beautiful , I, too, am the product of a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother, so I feel (rightly or wrongly) uniquely qualified to pass judgment on films which approach subjects like the Holocaust or more generally films with a religious subtext.
Conclusion: Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful is an exceptionally bold, magical film that captivated the hearts and minds of audiences around the world. It is not yet available on Blu-ray in the United States, but this Canadian release, courtesy of local distributors Alliance, looks and sounds very good.
