The Tiger and the Snow

Foreign film – Italian (2005).

Offbeat comedy of a romantic poet, Attilio, deeply in love with Vittoria. He follows his true love to war ridden Iraq where Vittoria is dying and he attempts to save her and to make her his wife. This is a zany movie at times with laughable scenes. The acting of Roberto Benigni (who also directed), Jean Reno (I didn’t realize he spoke Italian that well), and Nicoletta Braschi made the movie bearable.  Watch it if you have time on your hands, if not, oh well you haven’t missed much. You won’t need any butter on the popcorn but do have a candy snack of your choice.
