Blast from the past: Roberto Benigni talks about Life is Beautiful

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't exactly exemplifying the pinnacle of professionalism while imitating Roberto Benigni in front of the man himself before we got down to the serious business of talking about Life is Beautiful in this 1998 interview. But what the hell: By that point, I'd seen him so many times in Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law that I couldn't resist repeating his on-screen anecdotes about his character's "very strange" mother (and her relationship with rabbits). As usual, Robert Clark has done a throughly first-rate job of editing this archival tape.
