Life is Beautiful
Transcript of Life is Beautiful
I thought the way it was set up as sort of a two part movie, the beginning a quirky comedy and the end a sad love/family story, was great
I also loved the characters, especially Guido, and how each one was unique
Overall I think this movie was one of the best I've ever seen and I recommend it to everyone La Vita è Bella (Life Is Beautiful!!) The Mood Historical Accuracy The director, Roberto Benigni, wanted us to learn the importance of family and love
He also wanted to teach us about the holocaust and how it split up families and love, even if you were a great person like Guido
Anyone who watches this movie is affected by the fact that families were split up by this event and it teaches people to love each other because something like this could easily happen again Guido, the comedic Italian Jew, falls in love with his "principessa"
Guido and his "principessa" (or Dora, her real name) have a son named Joshua
Guido, his son, and his uncle are taken to a concentration camp and his non-jewish wife insists she go as well
Joshua is too young to understand what is happening so Guido turns it into a game with many obstacles leading to the prize, a real life Tank!!!
The first 30 or so Minutes of this film is actually very comedic
Guido is a very odd, smooth talking character creating a silly feel to the beginning of the movie
When the character's are taken to the concentration camp the mood drastically changes into a sad, eye opening movie
During certain times in the "second half" of the movie, Guido's quirky side comes out
The scene where Guido and Joshua are talking over the loud speaker is a perfect example
The ending of the movie is where the tears really start flowing and the emotions pour out (even for me admittedly) I can safely say for the most part Roberto Benigni was historically accurate in directing this film
The one part that wasn't very accurate was when Joshua escaped from the guards because he didn't want to take a "shower"
The security at the concentration camps was way to strict to have kids run away like that and not be caught
