It'll show up in a bit. The image server caches things, including 404s. It's not a great shot but an appropriate counterpoint to the one you found.

I think Vinni pukh deserves to be higher on the list. Even Reitherman thinks it's the best Pooh adaptation.

Here's a good analysis of Vinni pukh for anyone who's interested: https://colorfulanimationexpressions.bl ... lysis.html

All this Ron talk in this thread is giving me flashbacks to the time someone used a bot to write a Harry Potter chapter.

Anyone care to explain why they think this is a good film to show to their, or anyone's kids? Frankly I'm worried enough about the message it sends to adults.

I think I was about 10 when I watched Life is Beautiful, and I liked it, but I don't remember it well enough to comment on the message of the film.

Well, I have it in my list because it's one of those films that allows you to broach the subject of the holocaust without the horrific violence and depressing themes. The point of view is from the kid (mostly) and the humor provides a lot of levity to balance out the reality of what's going on. Many jokes are geared toward the young kid, so the humor is largely accessible while providing the context for some great conversations. I built my list as "101X films you must see before you're 12" list - it's a film I'd want the kid to see, but one I'd want to watch with them. I want to know that the 12yo understands what happened in WW2. I want to know the kid understand why it's bad, why we don't treat Jews (or any group) like that, why we should be working as a society to prevent the marginalization of entire classes of people. It's not a film I'd tell my 11yo nephew to go watch with his friends for a fun night, but it's a film I'd want to watch with said nephew to make sure he understands the importance of what's happening therein.

Anyone care to explain why they think this is a good film to show to their, or anyone's kids? Frankly I'm worried enough about the message it sends to adults.
Well, I have it in my list because it's one of those films that allows you to broach the subject of the holocaust without the horrific violence and depressing themes. The point of view is from the kid (mostly) and the humor provides a lot of levity to balance out the reality of what's going on. Many jokes are geared toward the young kid, so the humor is largely accessible while providing the context for some great conversations. I built my list as "101X films you must see before you're 12" list - it's a film I'd want the kid to see, but one I'd want to watch with them. I want to know that the 12yo understands what happened in WW2. I want to know the kid understand why it's bad, why we don't treat Jews (or any group) like that, why we should be working as a society to prevent the marginalization of entire classes of people. It's not a film I'd tell my 11yo nephew to go watch with his friends for a fun night, but it's a film I'd want to watch with said nephew to make sure he understands the importance of what's happening therein.
I have the exact opposite opinion, I don't think children need to be, or more importantly, SHOULD be eased into a subject like mass genocide with humor(especially humor of THIS kind). Horrific and depressing is exactly what it is, introducing such heavy topics to a kid only to lace them with humor will just serve to downplay the significance of them, which can be very dangerous. If you're not comfortable explaining about the holocaust without the deep(-ly inappropriate) sugarcoating, then maybe it's better to just say they're not ready to be exposed to the subject yet. I don't even think cinema is a good way to teach a kid about the various atrocities of WW2, but if I had to use films, Life is Beautiful would be somewhere at the very bottom of my list, next to all those Naziploitation flicks.

I guess it all depends on how you see the film though, and personally I can only see the insensitive/repulsive side of it.

If you had to show a WWII film to a kid, which film would you show?
