      I do not believe I have. Is it a good movie?

      I have seen it a couple of times.  It is a beautiful movie, I was in tears at the end thinking of how strong can love be to survive intact in such a horrible environment.  "La vita e bella" is certainly one of the most inspiring films I have seen.

        I was crying too, apparently. But yes, it has a strong moral.

    Yes it is wonderful! It's about a man and his kid who are Jewish and get taken away to a concentration camp.  The dad tells his son it's all a game to keep his son safe.

    This is for you sherwinboy.   

    It is a movie by Steven Spielberg called EMPIRE OF THE SUN.
    It is also about a boy trying to survive during a war.   
    Except he gets separated from his parents.
    It is Rated PG and it came out in 1987.

    If you like Batman Begins then you'll love it cause Christian Bale plays the little boy. 

    enjoy!

    I really liked that movie. I thought that the concept and the execution was fascinating; Benigni did a great job integrating comedy into a very tragic event, and it works because the comedy and the fact that the little boy was ignorant of the degree of severity of the Holocaust serves to highlight this tragedy. Thanks for the forum topic big_smile

    Well, you come back and let me know what you thought, if you ever get a chance to see it. 
    You have really good taste in movies at a young age.  That is very impressive and I would be curious as to what you thought.  But he does get lonely so you should watch it with your folks if you can.   Enjoy it pal.

    I haven't seen it yet, but it sounds interesting.  I just checked it out on the Internet.  The writer/s must have done their work, because to turn the topic into a comedy would present its own set of challenges. It came out in 1997 for those like me who haven't seen it yet, but might now be curious to.

    Incredible film...you really love the main character and as he holds on to hope...so do you...right until the very end.  And even though you know what happened, you just can't bring yourself to believe it.  You just really want to keep hoping....that he'll come back around the corner and be okay.
