Scene from Life is Beautiful movie (1997) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Y9aKq... From a reviewer: I must say that I think Roberto Benigni (the writer, director, and actor) created a masterpiece that touches your heart -- not only do your cheeks hurt from smiling/laughing, but your eyes burn from the tears. As Benigni himself stated, "...I am a comedian and my way is not to show directly. Just to evoke. This to me was wonderful, the balance to comedy with the tragedy."

====
The universal lesson of life: The human ability to turn personal tragedy into triungh -- when you cannot not change a situation you need to change your attitude to it, to the feeling of meaninglessness. A presenation by Dr. Frankl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_Cey-...

In his book, Man's Search for Meaning (1946): Viktor Frankl (1905-1997) chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate and describes his psychotherapeutic method of finding a reason to live. According to Frankl, the book intends to answer the question "How was everyday life in a concentration camp reflected in the mind of the average prisoner?" The book is among "the ten most influential books in [the United States]." (New York Times, November 20, 1991). By 1997, at the time of the author's death, the book had sold 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. Interview with Dr. Frankl: http://community.livejournal.com/psyh...
