Life is Beautiful is truly one of the greatest Holocaust movies of all time. It weaves the stories of a young romance, Jewish life in World War II, and the relationship between a father and his son. Parents, be warned that there is a multitude of violence, as the movie is set in a Jewish concentration camp, and there are many dark themes about death. Many main characters are threatened with dying, and one is revealed to be executed in a gas chamber after being tricked. Another character is led into an alley where he is shot and killed, orphaning his son. Although tragedy is threaded throughout the movie, happy tones appear as well. The romance between the two major characters is sweet and heartwarming, and the life before the concentration camp is very joyous and carefree. Be prepared and bring a Jumbo-size pack of tissues.
