Life Is Beautiful ★★★★★

It's so unbelievably charming. The best I've seen tragedy weaved into what is largely a comedy. The humor is great throughout, and the dramatic scenes are executed so well. Benigni's energy put me off for maybe a minute, but I loved him in it the whole way through after. I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't prepared for (what I thought was) the ending, and then I also wasn't ready for having the ending I'd hoped for. Just a lovely movie set against the least lovely backdrop imaginable.
