melancholybaby🔪’s review published on Letterboxd:
I laughed, I cried and I became so hopeful. A touching movie film with a dose of humour which makes a bit lighter the tragic experience of a Jewish Italian family during the secons world war. However, I really love how Benigni showed the scene of death by just having people last moment. And after that, no kind of sad music played or whatever, so that we as the audience should decide by ourshelves what exactly happening.
The super atractive acting brought by Benigni (Guido), a calm but pure on the face acting by Braschi (Dora), and a curiousity and childness acting by Cantarini (Giosue) could make anyone thinks how natural this movie is.
