Ende der 30er Jahre wird der jung verheiratete Jude Guido mit seinem Sohn ins KZ deportiert, seine nichtjüdische Frau geht ins Frauenlager. Bis zum bitteren Ende versucht der Mann seinen Sohn vor der Realität zu schützen, indem er ihm das KZ als Spiel darstellt. Roberto Benignis Gratwanderung zwischen Humor und Tragik, der Einsatz von Slapstick gegen das Grauen verunsichert. In diesem gefühlvollen Werk liegen Weinen und Lachen nahe beieinander, wobei das Lachen im Hals stecken bleibt. (Margret Köhler) Lebenskünstler Guido erobert im faschistischen Italien auf komischen Umwegen die Lehrerin Dora. Als Juden werden er und sein kleiner Sohn ins KZ deportiert. Dort bemüht sich Guido, dem Kind das Leben im Vernichtungslager als enormes Spiel darzustellen und beschützt ihn bis zur letzten Konsequenz. Roberto Benignis gewagter Versuch, Komik und KZ zu verquicken, ist unausgeglichen, letztendlich aber gelungen und erstattet dem Grauen seine Unfaßbarkeit zurück. (Zoom, 8/98) (...) Virtuos in der Verknüpfung von Komödie, Märchen und Tragödie entfaltet Roberto Benigni eine im europäischen Kino selten gewordene Form des Emotions- und Illusionskinos, die er zugleich inhaltlich und visuell reflektiert. Formal geschlossen und thematisch sensibel balanciert, wird "La Vita E Bella" zu einem unbedingt empfehlenswerten Filmkunstwerk. (multimedia) (...) Sehr kühl nahm Angelopoulos seine Palme entgegen - während Roberto Benigni, der für sein KZ-Märchen den Grand Prix gewann, vor Freude ganz aus de
