La vida es bella is an Italian film. It is a 1997 comedy - drama film that was directed by Roberto Benigni. The main characters are Roberto Benigni and Nicoletta Braschi.

This film is about Benigni's own family history. Guido falls in love with Dora. Some years later they have a son, his name is Joshua and as they are Jewish, they are taken to a German concentration camp. There he tells Joshua that that camp in reallity is a game that manages to protect is son of the dangers of the concentration camp. Guido is looking for Dora and is arrasted, when they are going to execute him, he sees Joshua hidden in a box. The next day, the Americans arrive with a tank, so he thinks that he has won the game. The Americans  free the prisoners and Joshua meets his mother. 

I really recomend this film, it is a very beautiful film that makes you cry, and laugh in some moments of the film. You can see the trailer here:
