Life is Beautiful

This is probably one of my all time favorite movies because it's one of those movies that is able to manipulate me from one extreme to another almost simultaneously. The protagonist is a free spirit who is determined to look at life on the bright side, not just because it's part of his nature, but because he can't allow his son to see how horrific it could possibly be.

So there's this undercurrent of the realities of life with these comical scenes that are pure genius. Somehow they've been able to catch the poignancy as well as the lust for life existing side by side.

I laughed till my side ached, and cried bitterly throughout this movie

We may disagree about many things, but on this movie I am in total agreement! This movie was nominated for 7 categories of Academy Awards and won in 3 of them. It was well-deserved!
