The director whose name is Salvatore Di Vita or lovingly known by people who saw him grew up as Toto has his whole life evolved around the movie house which is the Cinema Paradiso. It also touches... read more

*** This review contains spoilers ***Cinema Paradiso perfectly captures the obsessive and domineering power cinema has over its dedicated fans and their lives. Just like how our main character Toto becomes enchanted and engulfed by the movies, Cinema Paradiso is a movie which succeeds in doing just that. The movie follows the relationship of a child, Toto, with Alfredo, a projectionist at the loca... read more

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2016) (230 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Basically, it is a great movie about the love of movies. Back then, there was no television and you couldn't download movies so, the main source of entertainment was the movie theater and you actually physically had to go there, in the movies theaters. So, there was something really special about watching movies and this feature gave a really good idea about this feeling. Conce"

My movie year 2016 (496 movies items)

"18.4. (DVD/Kirjasto) Hyvin haikea elokuva - etenkin näin elokuvateatterityöntekijän näkökulmasta katsottuna - ja siinä samalla myös eräs eittämättä liikuttavimmista tänä vuonna katsotuista. Eiköhän sitä vielä itsekkin ihmetellä lapun luukullemme laittamista (pitääkin muistaa ehdottaa, josko katsoisimme vaikka Tornatorea viimeisenä etappinamme). Onneksi Hesari tietää, että elävällä kuvalla menee Suomessa paremmin kuin koskaan. Morriconen musiikki on ihmeellistä ja vai"
