    Beautiful. Powerful. Full of truth. You can never hold back spring...and you can certainly never convince me that either spring or this movie are not charming, warm and utterly enjoyable:).

    What fascinates me is the discrepancy between the reviews of some of the users and the oh so knowledgeable, head in the sand "critics". What are they so afraid of? Maybe recognizing what life is really about - a big joke.

    Only if you have yourself been hopeless and deeply in love will you be able to understand the complexity of someone like Begnini's character in this film. He loves his wife.

    What a very sweet romantic movie. Roberto Benigni is a lovable goofball, he is very cute. The comedy is not laugh out loud, it is lighthearted and enjoyable. How can anyone consider Benigni annoying, he might be a little but in a cute kind of way that makes me giddy all over!

    I couldn't believe it when I saw this in the lowest rated movies...I now have undeniable proof that movie critics are on crack. This was a fantastic, lighthearted, enjoyable movie. I've seen it numerous times, and loved every minute of it.

    I believe this is another piece of art which shows true love. In this movie Benigni tells us another love story. Love can do it all.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Everybody see Benigni only as comedian, but it's clear how deep character he is, so, another love story from him
    as director,certainly playing "real-life" Benigni (is he actually playing?), searching for society approval like individuality, but he is certain about war and crimes disapproval (Iraq theme), and he finds love as the only response to everything bad and odd..Must see, must think.

    I dont know what is wrong with the critics. This movie may not be the quality 'Life is beauitful' was, but it was still a pretty good film. Roberto Benigni's comedy is simple and smart, this film is lighthearted and very sweet. It's holds a kind of fantasy, fairy tale like love story which most European (Italian) love stories hold.

This usually does not come across well with American film critics who claim it is corny. But the way Benigni does it is refreshing. This is a nice film, and enjoyable. The critics are dead wrong on this one! May not be Oscar worthy, but it's worthy of a viewing or two. Expand

    Nothing special, somewhat entertaining. If you're a fan of RB then go watch it, if not save your money and wait for when it comes to TV.

    There's gotta be a ban against fossilized once-tolerable sentimentalist Italian directors! Considering the reality of what's going on in the world today, especially in Iraq, I found the movie not only devoid of any cinematic creativity, artistic integrity or simple charm, but also downright offensive, outdated and moronic_ emotionally and intellectually!

  1. Benigni clearly intends to make some impassioned statements about the futility of war, the power of romance, the enduring strength of optimism. However, the once-appealing innocence of his exuberant persona has become curdled over time.
  2. 0
    The longer the movie goes on, the more annoying Benigni's infantile behavior becomes.
  3. Remember that manic, rambling Oscar acceptance speech, when Benigni leapt around the auditorium? That might have been charming for two or three minutes, but imagine two hours of it.
