Title : Life is Beautiful
I watched a movie called "Life is Beautiful." This movie was released in Italy in 1997. Gwido is an Italian of Jewish descent. I met Dora, the daughter of a rich family, and fell in love at first sight, but Dora had a fiance at that time. However, Gwido continued to make Dora fall in love with his humorous and witty way of speaking.
.....
Watching this movie, the father tried to give his son a positive impression of life, sacrificing himself to his young son, saying, "Son, no matter how difficult the reality is, life is beautiful." It also showed equal education that freedom and dignity should be respected.
==============================
Does "equal education" make sense in the underlined part?

I think "equal education" is out of place. It should be replaced by people.

I can't make sense of it either. Also, if you wrote the first main paragraph, I don't understand your use of "I". If you were watching a film, you didn't meet anyone, nor did you fall in love with anyone. Did you mean "He met Dora", in which "He" refers to Guido? Note, by the way, the correct spelling of Guido.

I concur. 2 is better especially because 1 is unintelligible.

Mind you, it is just making stuff up. It has no resemblance to the father's words.

We respect people--not freedom or dignity. Also, what is meant by "sacrificing himself to his young son"?
