because of love

Ever since watching Life is Beautiful, I’ve been a fan of Roberto Benigni. La tigre e la neve or The Tiger and the Snow cements him as one of my favourite directors. He directs and acts in his movies and with each character he plays, his joie de vivre shines through. I think his specialty is love. How love is everything and anything else is just backdrop, even war. There is a scene in the movie where he tries to explain in Italian to an old Arabic guy how important Vittoria is to him. The old Arab doesn’t understand what he says but he knows what Attilio (Benigni) means. I cried buckets during that scene and at others. I think the guy next to me did too.
So yeah, watch this movie. Tell your friends. Let’s help make some revenue for Roberto so he gets to make more of his magical films.
