This is a beautiful and nostalgic coming-of-age film that will especially appeal to cinephiles, as it is all about the discovery of art and cinema. The cinematography itself is fantastic and, especially, the score is haunting and fitting for the more poignant and touching scenes of the film.

Another amazing score by Morricone that sweeps you away at the conclusion of the film. It depicts the powerful impact a paternal influence can have and reminds us not to cut out the moments of love from our life, even though they may be painful. Il Postino and Cinema Paradiso share several similar elements, but I feel ll Postino's love letter to poetry is more convincing than Paradiso's tribute to movies. In my opinion, this movie is a little overrated.

A true movie for movie buffs, has a whimsical quality to it without degrading the emotion of the film. Also has a beautiful score by Ennio Morricone, that alone makes it worth a viewing!

Maybe the greatest movie ever made, certainly the greatest movie about the movies ever made.

Nuovo cinema Paradiso review

A movie that requires full attention and patience to really absorb its beauty. A story of Salvatore Di Vita's (Jacques Perrin) history. he recalls his experience in a village of Giancaldo, Sicily which starts in the 1940's. He meets an amiable film projector Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) in Cinema Paradiso. An unfortunate accident happens and "Toto" takes over the film projection and meets a new girl named Elena from his school. The two get together but unfortunately, Elena transferred her and they never got back. Alfredo advises Toto leave the town to do what he loves "he must pursue his destiny wholeheartedly and never look back and never return, never returning to visit, never to give in to nostalgia, never to even write or think about them." Salvatore returns for a reason.
