"Academy Award-winner Roberto Benigni (Life Is Beautiful) stars as Dante, a kind-hearted but naïve buffoon who is happy driving the school bus for a group of mentally handicapped children but feels he is somehow missing out on life and love. His fortunes take a dramatic turn when he meets Maria, a dangerous driver who seems immediately enamoured of him. Dante is soon invited to her sumptuous Palermo villa, pleasantly unaware that he's being drawn into a underworld plot. He bears an amazing likeness to Maria's gangster husband, who also happens to be a stool pidgeon and it would be very convenient for the couple if the mobster, in the shape of Dante, was seen to be dead and buried."--Container
