Simply excellent
2 February 2002 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

One of the best comedies ever done in the film history. Benigni and Troisi a couple that can hardly be repeated. Money doesnt necessarily make great films...and great films do not always need loads of money. This is a great example.
