“Life is beautiful” portrays self-sacrifice and how an individual at any cost is willing to sacrifice everything for their very own family. Roberto Benigni put together audacious ideas that were fraught compelling circumstances and made individuals attempt to preserve anything that is far more valuable than their own lives. This story takes place in World War 2 during the Jewish holocaust about a man named Gudio, his wife Dora, and son Joshua and the brutal sacrifices he had to make to keep his family safe. He showed that self-sacrifice has no limitations whatsoever and the love of a family is what keeps them going.

Dora came out of nowhere and told the soldiers that she wanted to go with Joshua and Guido, even though she did not have to because she had a very rich background but she still insisted and that showed how much love she had for her family. Dora was very aware of the consequences that might occur if she had got aboard the train but in her eyes those consequences did not matter. Even after the officer told her to go home it was inevitable and she was not leaving even knowing that going to where her family is will result in chaos. This shows the strong relationship she has with Guido and Joshua and didn’t hesitate once to turn around.
