The Most Dishonest film I have ever seen. I was disgusted by it.
At the very beginning they should have put a message on the screen that said:
"The truth is that most Italian Christians approved of, aided in, looked away from or tacitly allowed the destruction of the Italian Jews.
In this movie the only bad guys are German not Italians.
The Italian Fascists were every bit as evil as the Nazis but were just not as efficient.

This movie is not about Italian fascists and it doesn't have to be. It's the story of one man and his love for his family. If you want to see a movie that shows Italians fascists as the bad guys, I guess you have to watch another movie. You shouldn't blame or criticize a movie based upon your own personal expectations what it should be about.

The Italians have been in denial since 1943 about their willing cooperation with the Nazis.
Cheap sentimental and dishonest film like "Life is Beautiful" are pointless. Forget the fictional story about the man, his wife and son.
No movie has to be about anything. People may film any garbage they want.
Read the marble inscription in Washington, DC: "A country that forgets its history will be condemned to relive it."
The hapless Italians are half way to that condemnation!
