TOM's Film Club: Cinema Paradiso (PG) on Thursday 14th February 2019
The second film by Giuseppe Tornatore (Malena) is a nostalgic evocation of his childhood days, but also of those bygone times when people used to go to the cinema as part of an almost daily routine. Told largely via flashbacks, the film starts with a middle-aged director reflecting on his youth and friendship with a wise old picture-house projectionist named Alfredo, as well as reminiscing of his first (and implied, only) love, Elena.
Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, Cinema Paradiso has since endured and endeared as one of the great coming-of-age pictures in cinema as well as a charming and poignant reminder of the lost art of cinema-going.
Italian with English subtitles.
“A funny, deeply moving celebration of the experience of movies”
