GOVIND PADMASOORYA FILM

Tehelka - - BOOKS - PADMASOORYA

The aptly-ti­tled Ital­ian tragi­com­edy Life is Beau­ti­ful is a film I keep com­ing back to. It makes you look at the cru­elty of the Nazi regime through the fil­ter of whims and imag­i­na­tion, some­thing that must have been very dif­fi­cult to achieve. The en­thu­si­asm for life is in­fused into each frame. The pro­tag­o­nist, played by Roberto Benigni, brings hu­mour in ev­ery­thing he does. Benigni, who has also di­rected the film, makes act­ing look ef­fort­less, but as an au­di­ence, we can sense the com­plex­ity of the char­ac­ter.
