In this WW II tragicomedy, Guido marries Dora and together they have a son. Five years later they are imprisoned in a concentration camp. Guido does not want his son to know why they are there, so he says that it's a game in which the winner receives a tank. In one bold stride, Robert Benigni (director, star and screenwriter) has set himself apart from the rank and file of funnymen, joining the elite class of clowns who know that humor and heartbreak are only a howl of pain apart. Benigni won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance, while the film itself won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film
