About Roberto

( wikipedia | imdb | dmoz )
I haven't yet written a blurb about Roberto.

Roberto Benigni is said to have been born on Monday 27 October 1952, which would make him 65 years and 28 days old (if this date is accurate and he is alive today).

This movie truly sits somewhere on the border between comedy and tragedy. On the one hand you have Roberto Benigni playing his usual character, bringing abundant smiles. On the other hand you have war and a loved one at the edge of death. In my view this is a terrific movieā€”but save it for a day when you're in the mood for romantic comedy drama.

Since discovering Roberto Benigni in Down By Law in 1986, seeking to relive that "first high", I've remembered him as funnier than he's been in any other movie I've seen him in. This one is no exception. Though it's not a roarer, it does have a few laughs and it's probably the best of the "other" Benigni movies I've seen. Two points in the film's favor are the presence of the one and only John Lurie (who also played in Down By Law) and the photography by Robby Müller, my favorite cinematographer (he shot Down By Law as well as Paris Texas, which also happened to feature John Lurie). To watch only if you're a cinephile with an interest in one of these names. (Last viewed: February 2012)

Italian movie with Roberto Benigni. A weak introduction, good moments as it ramps up, then it gets so crass that we stopped watching. (Last viewed: August 2009)
