Life is Beautiful

Comedy, Drama, War 1h 56m 1997

Aroview: Winner of both Best Foreign Film and Best Actor Oscars (a first for an actor speaking a foreign tongue) as well as the top prize at Cannes, Roberto Benigni’s ‘holocaust comedy’ is a tour de force that exemplifies a triumph of the human spirit.

Extending his Chaplin-esque gift for clowning, he engages in a cheeky romantic serenade against a backdrop of Fascist Italy, then must expend every ounce of his boundless optimism to survive the indignities of life at a concentration camp with his young son.
