Nuovo cinema Paradiso

Giuseppe Tornatore Italia, 1988

Thomas Ban's rating of the film Cinema Paradiso

This movie helped me realise that Tornatore is in fact a tearjerking-seeker director, that relise on sympathy from the public for it's one dimensional charachters that do nothing that mime pathetic emotions. It seems that making a 3 hour film hasn't helped solving the many "problems" Salvadore came upon, Tornatore just took the easy way and made the most hollywood-like ending he could come up with. 3 stars
