The Contenders: Page 3
This is a really funny yet sad movie about a Jewish Italian family sent to a concentration camp during the Holocaust. The father, played by the movie's director Roberto Benigni (a big name in the Italian film industry), drives the story with his remarkable sense of humor that persists to guide his family through this time of hopelessness.
I agree that this one should be in the top 10. A very classy way to approach a difficult topic. Shows the power of the human spirit and ability to survive even in the worst of situations.
A great albeit controversial movie. By the way, Fahrenheit 911 is not based on history.
I love main hero - the father. It's so great to save child's life with such nice sharme as he did. Kind and emotional movie) one of my favoritesV 1 Comment
Some of the names have been changed in this movie, but most of the people actually existed, including Mel Gibson's main charecter, and the bad guy too! The point is, its historical, and its a great movie. - heatherV 2 Comments
Well the truthfulness of the events in the original book and movies to follow can never be verified nor disproved, but it is historical fact in that the movie is based on an actual family that claimed to be terrorized in a house in the town of amityville formerly occupied by one Ronald Defeo who in fact did murder 6 members of his family. So yes I would say it is historic as well as interesting.
Indeed terrifying, although I cannot understand Amityville's placement in the historical category - unless you consider the supposed "based on true events" tag. Is fascination with a Catholic devil (think The Exorcist) a marker of the 1970s?V 1 Comment
Where Johnny Depp was the infamous John Dillinger. - jezza0
My dad knows some people from when it really happened.
Daniel Day lewis gave his best acting here. The way he portrayed lincoln was outstanding.
I almost cried when I saw this movie.. and I am really insensitive!
I thought, that it was impossible not to cry when watching this movie. You need to be disconnected from any human emotion to be indifferent about this hartbreaking story.
The story of probably the greatest rapper of all time Biggie Smalls and his former life on the streets and his ups and downs leading up to his death in 1997 - roblist
Not a very good film, but it has lots of information about how special effects were done in the early twentieth century.
