(Directors cut)
Cinematography by :BLASCO GIURATO

This film is my personal BEST FILM EVER and its my beloved CLASSIC. A genious like maestro Ennio Morricone blessed this film with a heavenly music .

A celebration of youth, friendship, and the everlasting magic of the movies.
Won Academy Award for best foreign language film (1989), Grand Prix du Jury , Cannes, Golden globe for best foreign language film(1990) , BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language(1990) and many more.

A famous film director receives news from his aging mother in a little town that someone he once knew has passed away. A beautiful story unfolds about his childhood(then called as Toto) at the Cinema Paradiso where Alfredo, the projectionist, first brought about his love of films. Their bond was one that contained many highlights and tragedies, and shaped the way for a young boy to grow and move out of his rundown village to pursue a dream.He is also reminded of his lost teenage love, Elena, who he had to leave before he left for Rome .With the love and guidance of the aging man, Toto navigates the trials of first love and builds on his ever-growing passion for the cinema. Ultimately, it is Alfredo who convinces Toto to leave his village to pursue his dreams of becoming a director. But as Salvatore thinks back on his youthful romances and his innocent love of movies, he comes to realize that perhaps his success has come at a very high price.
The film also brings the audience through the changes in cinema and the dying trade of traditional film making, editing and screening.
