Life Is Beautiful

4 April 2015
Review of a portion of Roberto Begnini’s Oscar-winning movie Life Is Beautiful.

This paper shows how the movie provides a contrast between the despair many faced in the concentration camps of World War II and his interpretation of the life of Guido and his son Joshua shows that even in a man’s darkest hour, life continues and humor can erase the pain. This paper focuses on the emotions of the movie by examining a specific scene to be used as an example.
“While watching Roberto Benigni’s Life is Beautiful, I discovered how such a talented writer, director and actor could bring happiness into one of the worst periods in modern history – the Holocaust during World War II. Through the ability to laugh not only at himself but also at the establishment that oppressed his way of life, Guido (Benigni) was able to keep his son Joshua (Giorgio Cantarini) calm and give Joshua and his wife Dora (Nicoletta Braschi) hope when he himself had already resigned to his condemnation.”
