New Benigni film finds love, laughs in Iraq war - Yahoo! News: "Benigni masterfully creates room for comic release in otherwise tense moments, making audiences laugh during a slapstick dash into a minefield and an uncomfortable run-in with soldiers at a U.S.-manned roadblock."

Sounds like a real knee-slapper there! I don't want to judge a film pre-release and pre-having seen it so I won't. I'll just say that maybe it is just me but I don't have any desire whatsoever to see Benigni hamming it up in the middle of such a senseless tragedy.
