Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond 'life Is Beautiful: Comedy And Tragedy in the Cinema of Roberto Benigni (Transference)?
there's more to benigni than life is beautiful Mar 11, 2005
Being a great fan of the film, Life is Beautiful, I bought this book as soon as I saw it advertised. From the first time that I viewed the film I was curious about Benigni in general and his other films in particular. I've also seen and enjoyed Johnny Stecchino and The Monster, and there are essays on these films too. This book has really helped me to understand the scope of his work and above all, it has helped me to put Life is Beautiful in the context of cinema in general and Holocaust films in particular. In addition, I now understand why Life...has caused so much debate and controversy, and maybe I'm reconsidering my originally very positive opinion of the film. Maybe I had missed some points that I now see more clearly. I enjoyed almost all the essays, although there are 1 or 2 that maybe went a little overboard on the footnotes and references (I'm thinking particularly of the Kirkham essay). All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to really understand Benigni's films and especially Life is Beautiful.
