La Vita è Bella
July 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm£5 – £10
Winner of 72 awards including three Oscars (best foreign film, best leading actor – Benigni, and best soundtrack – Nicola Piovani), Life is Beautiful is based on a story of a gentle, Jewish-Italian father (the waiter) who desperately tries to shelter his son from the horror of his surroundings by hiding the truth, convincing him that their time in the camp is merely a game.
To some, this paradoxical form seemed to diminish the atrocity of the Shoah, but, to most people (including the Jewish communities) it seemed ‘an effective way to allude to the unspeakable’ (Roberto Chiesi). Written by Vincenzo Cerami and Roberto Benigni.
