Sharepoint 2010 share a list on a subsite to the main site?

I really need to share a list on a subsite with a list on the main site, if possible have them show the combined data. Is this possible and how do you do it? I was able to use a soap connection to get the list data into a web part on the page, but i would like it to be a part of the list.

Hi! The data from SharePoint lists is available across entire sitecollection. This means that you can read data from any  subweb on any other subweb or root web. Unfortunately you cannot cofigure listview webpart to show list from other web, using web UI, but you can do this using SharePoint 2010 Designer.

This also can be done using Content Query Webpart, using web UI.
