Roberto Benigni's Vita e bella, is in many ways similar to Chaplin's Great Dictator. Life is really beautiful as you watch Guido's relentless efforts to make a lovely exciting experience of the concentration camp to his son. There is even an appearance by The Magnificent Seven's Horst Buchholz as Doctor Lessing, a man who events change for the worse. In a especially humorous scene , Guido translates a guard's barking at the inmates as furthers clarification of the rules of game. All in all, a great film which anyone and everyone should see at least once during their life. His made up story of how the camp is a game and the father-son team are the leading competitors.
Occasionally events seem a little contrived, but this does seem to work in the film's favour. In one sequence he pretends to be a school inspector and gives an impromptu speech on racial superiority before the assembled students and teachers, ending with a striptease. In an attempt to hold his family together and help his son survive the horrors of a Jewish Concentration Camp, Guido imagines that the Holocaust is a game and that the grand prize for winning is a tank. Guido explains to Giosué that the camp is a complicated game in which he must perform the tasks Guido gives him. Life is beautiful charms you right from the opening shot of the beautiful Italian countryside. Net Team :::…-::- -::-…::: Exclusive On Download Hub.
This movie changed my life from the first time I watched it. While the young Giosué excitedly tells his mother about how he had won a tank, just as his father had promised, the adult Giosué, in an overheard monologue, reminisces on the sacrifices his father made for him and his story. It's an unforgettable story formed by two halves that proves imagination, family and love conquer all ; as Benigni's focus is on the love between daddy , mummy and son. Roberto Benigni was inspired by the book of Rubino Romeo Salomoni, an Italian Jew who survived the concentration camps and returned home after the war. In this period he and Dora Braschi have had their son Giosue Cantanarini. Every little thing that happens will serve a purpose later on in the movie.
Shot in Canada, Life is Beautiful stars Manoj Amarnani as Raj, a Superman fanboy who is in love with Linda Nancy Brunetta. Life Is Beautiful manages to walk the extremely thin line between humor, fantasy, and tragedy. In the camp, Guido hides their true situation from his son. And I get the message. Salmoni was an Italian Jew who was deported to Auschwitz, survived and was reunited with his parents, but found his brothers were murdered.
This is one of the best films that I have ever seen. The plot is very good, though slightly unrealistic. Benigni tirelessly maintains the humorous ingenuity, even as the horror war escalates. He's a good comedy director Monster, Johnny Toothpick, Little devil with some flop Pinoccio and usual actor for Jim Jarmusch Coffee and cigarettes, Night of Earth, Down by law. The relationship between the two is very similar to that of Jackie Coogan and Charlie Chaplin though Benigni, unlike Chaplin, keeps the best of the comedy moments. When his car speeds, without brakes, through a village and is mistaken for a king. This movie proves once and for all how strong we are, as humans, that in the face of adversity we can make the best of things.
Guido not only appeals to the audience due to his comedy and sheer pleasantness, but also in the way that he loves his family and the measures that he will go to to protect them. But when his appeal for a Canadian residency visa is rejected, he decides to marry a complete stranger named Pia Anokhi Dalvi. In movie, you will see how he is good at solving puzzles. Guido is then shot and left for dead in an alleyway. I came away with this feeling that no matter what I have to face in life, that I can overcome it. The comedy bits are just dismal, and if anything, makes you laugh at how badly-executed they actually are. The first part results to be an Italian comedy style , the second is horror along with humor.
Despite that, the movie does not fail to point out an element of the nazi psychology demonstrated by the doctor who was obsessed with riddles. All of the action is so neatly contrived that the film essentially ends when it's over, and then begins again with the introduction of Guido and Dora's cute five-year-old son Giosue Giorgio Cantarini few years later. The story, the performances, the entire theme of a person performing his duties as a husband, as a father is very 'moving' and inspiring. When breaks out, Guido, his uncle Eliseo, and Giosué are seized on Giosuè's birthday. Benigni did everything in this film. Good support cast formed by notorious secondaries as the Spanish Marisa Paredes , Lidia Alfonsi and Horst Buchhold as a Nazi doctor.
Benigni stated he wished to commemorate Salmoni as a man who wished to live in the right way. And not only is the film a terrific cinematic experience because of the importance and seriousness of the subject matter, but it is one of the funnier films I've ever seen. In this film, the spectator combines laughter and tears of sadness. To be honest I can't get this film out of my thoughts and decided to write this brief review in the hope that I could move on. Its so unsubtly done, it has to insult anyone with a bit of intelligence.
