Today, TV news mentioned his new movie, The Tiger and the Snow.
Like Life is Beautiful, that film is a comedy, on an extremely serious subject.
Hitler’s and Mussolini’s mass murder of Jews, in the former case.
George W. Bush’s and Berlusconi’s war in Iraq, in the case of the new film.
On TV, Benigni described The Tiger and the Snow as “an anti-war pamphlet”, though, being a comedy, different from documentaries.
