* EvilAllAlong: Played with, Dr. Lessing is introduced as a humble visiting German doctor during the first half of the film and largely disappears after a couple of scenes. But not before befriending Guido. [[spoiler: Guido later meets him as a doctor at the Concentration Camp, and seeing Guido gives him an unfortunate reminder the "untermenschen" around him are human beings. He's clearly ashamed of himself, but seems in no hurry to quit]].

''Life Is Beautiful'' (or ''La vita è bella'' in the original Italian) is a 1997 Italian comedy about UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust. Starring Roberto Benigni (who also wrote and directed it), the film won three Academy Awards: Best Original Dramatic Score, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actor. Benigni went down in infamy for the middle one, being so excited by his win that he [[LargeHam climbed over the seats of the Academy members in front of him to claim his award]].
