Life Is Beautiful ★★★★★

"Buon giorno, Principessa!"

Life Is Beautiful is heartwarming and heartwrenching. The heavy dreariness of Nazi Germany's oppresive party is never lifted, but the viewer is raised above those terrible things by the charm of the base man who is stuck in a position far above any man's station: a father. Such an amazing story with superb acting. Roberto Benigni is a genius! A father fights through all pain, depression, hard times and still manages to show his son that life is beautiful. Overall, it's a beautiful film loosely based on a true story, with an exceptional original score, outstanding performances and very strong direction.
