1997
****½
Director: Roberto Benigni
Cast: Roberto Benigni, Nicoletta Braschi, Giorgio Cantarini, Horst Buchholz

Concentration camp comedy sounds like an oxymoron, but Roberto Benigni somehow pulls it off. His film is a funny and heartwarming comedy about a father who clings to hope and laughter even at the face of death. A winner of three Oscars, which include best original score, best foreign language film and best actor (Benigni).
