An unforgettable fable that proves love, family and imagination conquer all.
A touching story of an Italian book seller of Jewish ancestry who lives in his own little fairy tale. His creative and happy life would come to an abrupt halt when his entire family is deported to a concentration camp during World War II. While locked up he tries to convince his son that the whole thing is just a game.

Beautiful characters and beautiful story, beautiful on so many levels. I still can't figure out if it broke my heart or if it made it bigger. Maybe a little bit of both.
