One of the best films ever written, this movie is about hope and how one can make life as wonderful and as beautiful in a child’s eyes despite its cruelty. Directed and acted by Robert Benigni, the entire film itself is truly memorable for its creativity. Two significant scenes however surely appeal to the hearts of many. One, when Guido (Robert Benigni) translates to his son the instructions of a German soldier as if they were in a game. In this scene he starts to create an imaginary story to his son to shield him from what is really happening. The scene will make you laugh and find yourself in the spell of Guido. Another is towards the end of the movie when Guido was captured. He was about to be killed yet he still acted as if it’s a game so his son who is looking and hidden inside a wooden cabinet will not be afraid. In this scene, anyone will be touched as to Guido’s self sacrifice for his son.
