When the film "Life is Beautiful" came out and then won multiple Oscars, it solidified Roberto Benigni's status as a great entertainer, director, creator and actor. The first time I came across his talents was an independent film "Down by Law" which also starred Tom Waits. I found Benigni to be naturally funny and I became a fan ever since. Here is a highlight scene. If you like his more popular movies, I recommend you to review this flick.
There is another film by the name of "Night on Earth" in which Benigni is a cab driver in Rome. He picks up a priest and proceeds to confess his sins while driving........ hilarious. Check it out.
