You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, and you’ll cry again…and that’s just from watching a 90-second clip from Life is Beautiful on YouTube; after watching it from beginning to end you may feel half Italian. Winning awards in the U.S., Britain, France, Italy, Israel, and Canada, Roberto Benigni charmed the world with this story of love and survival in German-occupied Tuscany during World War II. A timeless story worthy of consideration.
