This movie is mostly about the flashback of a well-renowned director of his childhood growing up as little boy and his love with the movies after hearing the news of the dead of Alfredo, a projectionist. 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

The Cinema Has No Boundary, It Is A Ribbon Of Drea

*** This review contains spoilers ***Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso is the ultimate movie lovers’ movie. A film which perfectly captures the obsessive and domineering power cinema has over its dedicated fans and their lives. In the manner of how the picture’s protagonist Toto becomes enchanted and engulfed by the movies, Cinema Paradiso is a movie which succeeds in doing just that. ... read more

Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (190 movies items)

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★ NOTES: A rare, recently unearthed archive print from back in the day, that made it to 2022 all scratched and tattered. A dozen frames are lost, the changeovers are severely damaged, the sound is completely roughened and the bottom borders on less than half the shots were clearly visible, and it wasn’t even projected off position. It was a heavenly thing to witness. Behind all the ruin is a picture so vivid and sharp you’d think it was the original. The grea"

One of the best and most moving films of the 80s

“As a big lover of film, I am still kicking myself for not seeing this masterpiece any sooner. To me, Cinema Paadiso is one of the best films of the 80s and also the most moving, particularly in the final hour.I have seen many visually stunning films, and Cinema Paradiso is up there as one of the most visually ravishing films I've seen. The cinematography and editing are outstanding, and the scenery still looks gorgeous with an epic feel to it. Cinema Paradiso, alongside The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West, also contains one of Ennio Morricone's most haunting scores and it is also one of my favourites of his.Cinema Paradiso is immaculately directed, has an touching, beautifully-written and honest script and a rich, compelling story that while it has an elegiac fe” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (110 movies items)

" Notes: Well, after all these years, it is still such a great movie and easily the best movie about movies. Back then, there was no television and you couldn't download the movies and you had to be there, in the movies theaters, and it was a magical experience. For me, to rewatch this flick after all these years was such a powerful experience. Indeed, I started to go to the movies when I was a little kid, back then, I was already fascinated and, after all these years, after watching maybe 6000 "

"Jos elokuvaa kuvaillaan sykähdyttäväksi, lämminhenkiseksi tai valloittavaksi niin poistan aseestani varmistimen. Rasittavan äitelä elokuva periaatteessa hyvin mielenkiintoisesta aiheesta, elokuvista. Elokuvan elokuvakohtaukset ovatkin kiinnostavia, kaikki muu lähinnä ärsyttävää, manipulatiivista ja itseriittoisaa. Jos ohjaaja olisikin Italian sijasta sanottakoon Saksasta tai ameriikan lämnöstä, pidettäisiin Cinema paradisoa rasistisena. Italialaisista puheenollen, heillä on erik"

Cinema Paradiso is in my top 50 favorite movies of all time because I love the story and characters. This movie is a love letter to movies with a heartwarming story that will also make you cry as well. I feel like that I can't add anything new to say because everyone else has talked about this movie to death. I highly recommend this movie if you nev"
