Film: Cinema Paradiso (Italian with English subtitles)
Directed by: Giuseppe Tornatore
Duration: 2 hrs 3 mins
One of the greatest love letters to cinema, this 1989 Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film also won the BAFTA and a host of other awards. The story is about a film director who recalls his past and how he fell in love with movies, in a small town in Italy. He forms a special bond with Alfredo, the projectionist at the local theatre who teaches him a thing or two about cinema and life.
A film that deserves to be seen on the big screen (it is about cinema after all, which is meant for the big screen), Roger Ebert said “…anyone who loves movies is likely to love Cinema Paradiso.
