Widely hailed as one of the world's funniest men, Academy Award®-winner Roberto Benigni (Life is Beautiful) has been one of Italy's most popular actors since the 1980s. Starring in his debut performance, Benigni is Mario Cioni, a hapless young man who lives with a tormented and antagonistic relationship with his mother. When he is told his mother has died, he returns home to find that she is very much alive and waiting to berate him for not showing up for her funeral quickly enough.
