    This was a gift, it came really fast. The movie was practically new. Great and sad movie.

    I can't say it enough: This is my ultimate favorite movie of all time. It makes you think, laugh, cry - no matter how many times you watch it. It will make you want to hug your child and never let them see you cry.

  • A Big Game Jun 19, 2008
    by piafinn

    This movie, done in Italian, with English sub-titles, was a beautiful movie about love and war. It's about the love of a man and a woman, and the love of a parent for a child. The actors are married in real life. He's a bit of a goof-ball, but it works here.
    It easily divides into two parts: the part before the war, and the part during the war. Many of the events in the first part carry over into the second; even the opera they had seen when they met, and a quirky Doctor who was obsessed with rhymes.
    When Dora's husband, Guido, is sent to a concentration camp with their son, Giosue, she insists on being sent there as well. They are separated while there, but he is able to send messages to her.
    In order to shelter his son from the horrors of war and the place where they are, Guido convinces him it's all part of an elaborate game, and the winner will win a real tank at the end.
    It was very funny at times, and bittersweet at the end. Five stars aren't enough.
