The Tiger and the Snow (La Tigre e la Neve)

Acclaimed Italian director and actor Roberto Benigni created a comedy movie set against the backdrop of war torn Iraq. The Oscar-winning star hopes The Tiger and the Snow will do for the war in Iraq what his Life is Beautiful did for the Holocaust. In the film Benigni will take the lead role of a poet who gets caught up in events in Iraq in March 2003 when the US launched its attack on Saddam Hussein’s regime.
