My Opinion

I simply loved this movie. I actually cannot shortly describe what I feel about this movie, because it is such a touching and nice movie that it cannot be explained easily. The whole movie is filled with humorous elements, but there is also tragedy. Roberto Benigni is wonderful as the witty Guido; Nicoletta Braschi is also good as Dora. It's according to my opinion one of the best movies ever made and one of my favorite films.

5 out of 5.
