One of the greatest Italian films of all time and our tribute to Ennio Morricone and Jacques Perrin who played Toto as an adult. A boy who grew up in a native Sicilian Village returns home as a famous director after receiving news about the death of an old friend. Told in a flashback, Salvatore reminiscences about his childhood and his relationship with Alfredo, a projectionist at Cinema Paradiso. Under the fatherly influence of Alfredo, Salvatore fell in love with film making, with the duo spending many hours discussing films and Alfredo painstakingly teaching Salvatore the skills that became a stepping stone for the young boy into the world of film making. If you haven’t seen this film then this is your chance, if you have then you can never watch it too many times.
