Heart warming (video version),
This review is from: Life Is Beautiful [DVD]  (DVD)
There was acts of courage in the Holocaust and this film trys to look at the good in people who show courage. I just shoved it in as I needed something to watch and quickly got hooked to it. It tones down the brutality that you usually see. It is very humerous and cheeky. I didn't know whether it was funny and heart warming or on the wrong side. It uses humour cleverly a powerful weapon to show the stupidity of an aryan race.
It got Hollywood Oscars which gives it backing as good but the amount of reviews is not surpising. I don't even cry at funerals but had a tear at the end. Only one other film did this. Just wonderful. I will buy the dvd now.
