Italian Movie : La vita è bella = Life is beautiful (with English subtitle)

When an open-minded Jewish book store owner and his son become victims of the Holocaust, he uses a perfect mixture of will, humor, and imagination to protect his son from the dangers around their camp. Despite criticisms of using the subject matter for comedic purposes, this film won the Grand Prix at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, nine David di Donatello Awards, including Best Film, in Italy, and three Academy Awards, including Best Actor.
