Cinema Paradiso  (Italy, 1988)

Filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso, presented here in the original director’s cut, casts its enthralling cinematic spell even as it reveals and revels in the mechanics of its making.  A paean to falling in love in the dark, as well as the heartbreak of waking up from the dream, Cinema Paradiso may be ultimate romantic cinephilia nostalgia trip.
