By Lee A Zito Life is Beautiful is a different kind of Holocaust film It approaches the horrific ordeal in a way that involves viewers comedically and romantically in the beginning but then utilizes these tools as a way to lure viewers to experience the Holocaust much like the Jews did As a sudden change to the happiness and enjoyment of their lives A few years ago I was flipping through the channels and saw that Life Is Beautiful had just started I had heard a lot of hype about it so I decided to watch it All I knew about it was that it was a Holocaust movie that was it I was shocked to find myself laughing at how funny it was especially in the beginning After a couple of minutes I sort of forgot I was watching a Holocaust movie it felt more like I was watching a Foreign Comedy that took place in the 40s Suddenly the main characters are imprisoned and sent to a concentration camp But its different than watching any other movie where the main characters are sent off to certain death Youve lived almost an hour observing their lives how husband and wife met Youve shared in their romance joy and laughter and now you share their fear and uncertainty as they are sent to a Nazi death camp The main character Guido is with his young son who can not help but ask his father question after question Guido himself is a little unsure but he knows it can not be good For his sons sake he turns uncertain danger into a game where his son learns silence and hiding is the key to winning the grand prize in the game his father has created a tank This is not an easy task for Guido who risks his life in every way possible to convince his son that this really is a game that everyone is
