The Journey with Jesus: Film Reviews
Film Reviews by Dan Clendenin
Life is Beautiful (1997)—Italian
The Italian director Roberto Benigni stars in his own film as Guido, a Jewish hotel waiter who with his son Joshua are loaded on to trains and taken to the death camps. It is all a humorous game, he insists to Joshua. Controversy swirled around this film with its use of humor to survive the Holocaust. Life is beautiful because the worse human evil cannot crush the human spirit.
