Life Is Beautiful [1999] is a very hard act to follow, and Benigni doesn't quite make it in this film. I think part of the reason is that his on and off screen love, Nicoletta Braschi, spends most of the film in a coma, so there's just Roberto going beserk, with no one to act as a foil to his excesses. Yet, second time through it was making me sadder and more sympathetic, and more attuned to the subtleties of the writing.

So this is a tale of 3 poets (yes, poets) and the Iraqi war. Attilio (Benigni) is a mess. He can never remember where he's left his car, keeps on picking up other people's jackets by mistake and is stalking the beautiful Vittoria (Braschi). Every night he dreams of marrying her to the gravelly strains of Tom Waits singing "You Can Never Hold Back Spring". She isn't too keen and tells him they'll only be back together again when hell freezes over- in her words - when she sees a Tiger in the Snow (and she makes it clear it has to happen in Rome). She's more interested in writing a biography of another poet, Fuad (the most understated performance I've seen from Jean Reno). She goes back to Bagdad with Fuad, and promptly gets bumped on the head by the falling debris from a bombed building, and ends up in a coma.

So the war is on. You can't get a civilian flight to Bagdad- Attilio desperately in love, gets to Iraq. You can't drive to Bagdad. He manages it. There aren't any medicines to treat her oedema (there aren't any chemists anymore!), so he finds an alternative cure, and finally some modern medicine. You can never hold back spring!

Dear Amazon
I order this dvd in UK and got it from the US. The problems is that US has other system than we have here in Europe.
It is 1 and I can only use 2.
The film is wonderful, because I have see it in tv but I can not see the dvd i bought.
So this is not ok
Bedst regards

4.0 out of 5 stars Roberto and Nicoletta again 11 Jun. 2011
By D. Jester - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you liked Roberto Benigni in La Vita E Bella, you will probably like this. He appears here again with his wife Nicoletta Braschi. This story goes in a different direction, so direct comparison of the two films is probably unwarranted, but you have to like Roberto's personality to like either of them. Funny bits with everything from oxygen tanks to minefields to camels are involved here. Reminds me a bit of a Woody Allen production, sometimes finding humor in unlikely places. There is one part of this film which does not segueway well, at all-it goes from very early in their relationship, to what apparently is much later, and Nicoletta ends up in Baghdad without much explanation, either. One word of warning: If you do not like singer Tom Waits, don't even think about buying this DVD. I actually like him, but they just about beat one of his songs to death in this film. You hear it early on, then maybe 5 minutes later, then maybe 30 minutes later (I didn't time it, just guessing), then again later. Personally I don't have that much tolerance for any song, even a good one, the song almost ruined the film for me. I understand there being a theme song, as there are in many movies, but this was just a bit too repetitive. The end of this movie leaves you wondering about a couple of things, and about what happens later, it could go either of two ways after we see our hero depart, we don't really know what happens, but I think about every viewer will agree on what they would like to happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a masterpiece 10 Jan. 2008
By E. Brown - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Roberto Benigni has again captured the depth and dynamism of human emotion and the beauty, grit, and passion of a world where people constantly struggle between power and love. As a director and actor he has captured, and accurately, portrayed the tension often felt in life between love and pain, excitement and disappointment, hurt and forgiveness. He plays the part of a poet who chooses his profession because he wants to be able to convey exactly what he felt in any given moment to those around him. Yet, this is exactly what he is incapable of doing when he wants to express love - even to his wife. This movie captures a glimpse of the depths of human emotion and the difficulty, even for the poet, to convey what is most desired - love. It manages to be philosophically, artistically, and theatrically astute and rewarding. Benigni has now made two masterpieces highlighting theological virtues - "Life is Beautiful": hope and "The Tiger and the Snow": love. Now we just have to see if he makes another highlighting faith. As always, Nicoletta Braschi is spectacular. She has a gracefulness and charisma that simply endears her to all who watch. This movie is certainly worth having in your collection and is one worth watching many times over.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and love in the face of war 9 May 2013
By Fudge - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a very touching movie of a poet's passion for the the woman he loves. He follows her (like Pepi le Peu going after the accidentally stripe painted cat) she keeps getting away from him but doesn't sees how truely passionate his love for her is. After she is injured in a bombing he finds a way to travel many miles to rescue her and do everything his pounding heart wills to save her. This is a wonderful, poignant and funny romance story. Roberto Benigni is such an amazingly wonderful actor, full of life and passion and with his wife Nicoletta Braschi, together makes this a beautiful film. Jean Reno is also in this film as Roberto's supportive poet friend.
