The Holocaust: La Vita e Bella
The movie will add fun to the audience and equally remind us how evolution and freedom were long sought.
The audience is viewing Giosue’s memories of his father’s actions. Yet another common criticism of this film is that the concentration camp was not fully realized. This is true, and can be seen when looking at two photos, one from the film when Guido and Giosue first enter the barracks and one actually taken in one of the barracks at Auschwitz during its liberation. In the film, the prisoners are all shown decently with proper clothing, and though they seem gaunt, they do not appear as if on the brink of death (Tatara, Paul, 2016).
