Reviews
Mine: A good and interesting film. Wonder performance by Benigni. I found the split nature of the film to be jarring. The first half is very light, the second very dark. Hard to adjust to the very quick change of tone. Still very good.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Extraordinary film by comedy star and filmmaker Benigni about an irrepres- sible spirit who refuses to ever give in to adversity, even when he is taken to a concentration camp with his wife and young son. He determines that the boy will be shielded from the horrors around them--and somehow finds a way to do it. A unique and beguiling fable that celebrates the human spirit. Benigni cowrote with Vincenzo Cerami. Grand Jury prizewinner at the Cannes Film Festival. Original title: LA VITA ╚ BELLA.

me gusto mucho la pelicula y creo que si te deja llevar de la risa al llanto pero tambien te hace refelxcionar de lo que es la vida creo queel papel le quedo corto a nicolleta y que debio hacer mas cosas aunque el si se lucio mucho en su actuacion pienso que lo malo es que como entodo bienen lo norteamericanos y nos salvan de todo eso no me gusta aunqure se que en la viudareal los americanos si salvaron a los italianos de algunos campos de concentracion... creo que la ┤pelicula es buena pero le falta algo no se puede mezclar asi y dejar todo el peso en el personaje de benigni
