TCP- Life Is Beautiful



I missed the TCP last week on which the theme is all about DRAMA. I cannot let this month end without my post about drama. This might be late but still I would like to insist not to miss the movie that I am going to feature. This has been my all-time-tear jerking favorite drama movie

This is one drama movie with a comedy twist that I would highly recommend. Though the language is in Italian but it has sub-title and some dubbed this movie to English for general viewing. This movie would really pierced your hearts to the deepest! This is all about the love of a father to his very innocent son.I watched this almost 7 years ago in Cebu during one of our Summer Training Program with the Navigators, Int'l.Though it has a very sad ending but this is one movie that I will never ever forget. Here's the excerpt of the movie:
In 1939, Guido, an Italian Jew, falls in love with Dora, who isn't Jewish. He woos her away from the Fascist official she has been dating, and they get married. Their son Giosue grows up among growing anti-Semitism. As the war progresses, Guido and Giosue are arrested and taken to a concentration camp. Dora goes too, determined not to separate the family. In the midst of the horrors of the camp, Guido protects his son by pretending that survival in the concentration camp is an elaborate game with which Giosue must play along or be sent home.
