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 local cinema, who becomes ... read more

25 From 88: My Favorite Films Of 1988 (25 movies items)

"Salvatore is a boy who lives in a small Italian village. And passing the time at the local cinema is the villager's favorite pass-time. With the exception of Salvatore. For him, the movies aren't just a way to kill a few hours. They're an obsession. The movie images that flash on the theater screen provide him with a window to the life and to the lessons that exist beyond the borders of the hamlet he calls home. Basically, Cinema Paradiso is a simple story that's just simply about love. L"

The Ultimate Movie Lovers' Movie

“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 local cinema, who becomes a father figure for Toto. Alfredo himself is very much a mythical character. He has no back story or even a surname, yet he succeeds in being one of the most unforgettable characters in film history. Don’t we all want an Alfredo in our lives?

This is such a rich experience of a film, the music and the scenery of Sicily immediately draw me in, I simply enjoying the essence of being there. L” read more

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E8 - August 2012 (33 movies items)

" Wow, deciding to purchase this film was a good idea. With a run time of 2 hours and 53min it might take me some time to get through all the extra features. A wonderful and sweet film. Another one that took me far too long to watch. I now understand why this is consider every film makers 'you must love this film'. Also, it was nice that the romantic story seemed to have at least one footing in reality."
