 Perfection.

Quite frankly, it's the greatest film ever made.

Head down to your local rental store or a DVD shop, or even an online place like here (no offence play.com, cause I do love you very much) and you find all the latest releases, right now it's 'Deja Vu', last week it was 'The Sentinel' -- you know, it's all very slick films with guns and people running around a lot.. life and death situations. Thing is, you watch enough of this and you become a bit numb, you forget the true effect that cinema can have on you. You forget how beautiful and inspirational it can be.

Okay-okay, you're thinking "beautiful and inspirational? oh God, this is going to be like one of those pretentious French films from the 60's".

But no. It's not like that. Let me make a statement - a pretty outlanding one at that but a something I believe to be true:

Cinema Paradiso is the finest film ever made. And yes, I've seen Shawshank Redemption.

Please please please buy this film - watch the Director's Extended Cut; yes, the whole 2.75 hours of it. It's filmic perfection.

Great price for a four disc extravaganza!

 Beautiful cinema, honest and sweeping

Italian cinema in the late 20th century had fallen somewhat behind as a leading art form without the talents of Fellini, Visconti and Pasolini making films that rocked the silver screen. It's fitting then that this brilliant film pays tribute to Italy's great cinematic past, as well as the mythical allure Hollywood exerted on the world in the 1940s.
The story is tender and touching, telling of a young boy falling in love with the cinema against the wishes of all of those around him. He comes to learn that cinema is his real passion, he cannot share it and he faces being alone if he doesn't take a couple of steps back away from it.
It's the relationships in this film that make it work, most notably between Toto and Alfredo. WIthout a trace of sentimentality Toto grows up the hard way, experiencing far too few joys in his life. Come the end he realises how right everyone else was but, ina scene of untold sadness, Alfredo grants him one last happiness.
Tornatore's direction is taut but leisurely careful to move the story along with precision and detail. He displays an increasingly common technique of prolonging the ending only to deliver an emotionally powerful final scene.
Kudos to Ennio Morricone for his lush, mellow score, ranking alongside his best. It's his spiritually affecting music that ignites a sub-conscious passion behind the film to touch the heart so warmly. A beautiful little film, unsung in its greatness but extraordinary in its weight and depth.

 Must have DVD

A wonderful film, a classic and one of the best other language films and a must have dvd. Its title might mislead you, although film is having a lot of other things including romance. Sepciality of this film is that it starts from old age, takes you back to the childhood and bring you back.

 A Projectionist's favourite

What can I say, I cry every time I watch this film! Beautifully shot, acted and scored, it's a must for anyone in the film business or if you just love the atmosphere of the Cinema, I'm a projectionist so it holds a lot of happy memories for me. When 35mm projection finally bows out in about 10 years time this film will be a tribute to a lost art of projection, you don't just press PLAY you know! :-)
BUY IT, and have some tissues ready!
