I just got to watch La vita è bella for the first time. It's a beautiful movie. The movie is about a father, Guido, keeping his son alive during the German occupation in Italy. Guido tries his best to keep his son from hunger, from being killed and most importantly to survive the life in concentration camp. He told his son that it was a game and they collect points when they do something; even little things like hiding or keeping quiet.
I wept when he was murdered after being caught by the Nazi, trying to find his wife. And wept again when his son boarded the victory tank and found his mother at last.
They won the first place. Beautiful!
