George Bailey, the owner of a credit company in the fictional American town of Bedford Falls, an honest, responsive, loving husband and father, is suppressed by the adversities that have fallen on him and is considering suicide.
Obviously, a person who refuses Gods greatest gift Â life Â needs the help of a guardian angel. And Heaven sends him to the rescue of Clarence, the only free at that time Angel of the Second Class, pleasant, kind, but inexperienced, who did not even deserve wings.
If he does his job well and can dissuade George from mortal sin, he will receive wings. And he had almost no time left … Clarence finds the only right decision – to show George a world in which he does not exist.

This wonderful life (I love this movie)
I will never forget that incident, I worked with films then, a woman approached me and asked about this film. She looked for him everywhere, but could not find, and with us this film was as an addition to the magazine. I showed it to her, and she just with crazy eyes bought this magazine with a disk. I was very surprised that in our city they know this film. It turns out that everything is not so bad.
Of course, this case is very rare. Now Frank Kapru and his films are no longer remembered. I am silent about Russia, but in America, he was always respected, and many did not know his work, but every American, probably, saw this film, at least once. Just look at how many votes this film has in Russia and America, the difference is huge. This one says a lot. Before us is a real masterpiece, at all times. He was parodied millions of times, but no one else could beat him.
In the film, we are shown the life of an ordinary guy who climbed up and then fell down. It took a small miracle to understand what was most important in this life? And most importantly, it is the love and warmth of close and dear people, and money and a career are not so important. Because, loved ones love us, not at all for that.
Frank Kapra was a storyteller, he shot such good pictures that it became immediately warm when they were watched. This film was no exception. This is probably his best movie. The main role here was played by the brilliant actor James Stuart. He played, as it showed me, very sincerely; no one could play this role better than him.
I recommend this movie to all fans of classic cinema. Before us is one of the best paintings of the time. It is a must-see. A true masterpiece, I recommend.
