Life is Beautiful (Roberto Begnini) -- wonderful

That was a wonderful movie. For more Italian flavor, check out Il Postino (The Postman). I think it's now available dubbed into English; make sure you see the version in Italian with subtitles.

The unsurpassed love poetry by the Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda (about which the movie turns) is worth the price of admission by itself.

Top notch date movie, too.

PS - I second the nomination of Kurosawa's Ran. Read Shakespeare's King Lear first for a little added depth.
