Salvatore, a successful filmmaker, remembers his childhood in his war-torn Sicilian village—where the perfect place to escape from life was the Cinema Paradiso. His deep love of films all started there, instilled by Alfredo, the theatre’s projectionist.

Our take

One of the most beloved films in modern international cinema, Giuseppe Tornatore’s nostalgic ode to moviegoing and childhood is suffused with an unwavering romanticism. Winner of the Oscar© for Best Foreign Language Feature, Cinema Paradiso is a heartfelt love letter to cinephiles everywhere.
