Benjamin's Favorite Movies
Guiseppe Tornatore's masterpiece,a timeless classic,...with one of the best and most beautiful ending in the whole history of cinema. An extraordinary celebration of youth,friendship and the everlasting magic of movies,a film that everytime I wach it,takes me back to my childhood in Nicaragua and all those nights I spent in the theater discovering and falling in love with the stories,the music,the stars that came througt the screen,while outside a war,a revolution was going on. I found refuge in the movies,...that's why I love this film so much and I identify myself with it,my all-time favorite. The whole cast is amazing,and Ennio Morricone's music is breathtaking and sublime,...moviemaking at it's supreme best,a wonder of the world!!! If there were A Nobel Prize for movies as there is for fiction writing, Guiseppe Tornatore for sure will be a winner for this amazing superb film!
An extraordinary and wonderful fable that celebrates the human spirit. Winner of 3 Oscars for Best Foreign Film,Best Actor:Roberto Benigni,and Best Score:Nicola Piovani. La Vita E Bella is a breathtaking masterpiece of beauty and power,an inspired comedy-drama that combines slapstick,satire,and social commentary in a unique and surprisingly effective way. The only other film that comes close to it in beauty and is consistently hilarious,and unforgettable as this one is "The Great Dictator" by Charles Chaplin. Benigni's gift to the world,the story of an irrepressible spirit who refuses to ever give in to adversity! A film for the soul! One of the world's great pictures,a film that proves that love is all you need!!!!
