Cinema Paradiso (12A), Film
What better way to celebrate the reopening of cinemas than with this Oscar winning classic – a heartfelt testament to the power and emotion that cinema can bring. After receiving news of the death of his old friend Alfredo (Philippe Noiret), Salvatore a famous film director returns to his small Sicilian home village after 30 years away. Salvatore recalls his childhood in the aftermath of WWII, where his lifelong passion for film was sparked by trips to the local cinema and his friendship with its projectionist Alfredo. With an elegiac score by Ennio Morricone and his son Andrea.
Directed by Guiseppe Tornatore.
