Wow. I know this movie is like 10 years old, but like a lot of things (Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc.) I am way behind and just saw it the other night. Nate and I rented it...he has wanted me to see it for a long time. It's the most touching story of an Italian Jew who is taken to a concentration camp with his 6 year old son. When his wife finds out where they have been taken, she begs to go also and is permitted to do so. In order to keep his son's spirits up, the father does everything you can possibly think of to convince the 6 year old that the whole thing is a game/contest to win a tank. He tells him whoever gets the most points wins, and you lose points for complaining about hunger, letting the guards see you, etc. They are separated from the mother during all their time at the camp. This is a clip when the father takes a risky chance to express his love to his wife and let her hear her son's voice. It totally made me cry. It was so sweet/sad.
If you haven't seen this, you must! And if it's been awhile, it's worth seeing again. It was a great reminder of the power of humor and love as we attempt to deal with adversity. Such a wonderful movie!
