Cinema Paradiso - Trailer
Director Giuseppe TornatoreYear 2013Genre(s) Dramas
Salvatore Di Vita is an Italian film director who has nursed a passion for film ever since he was a boy. As a youngster, he learned how to operate the projector at the movie house Cinema Paradiso from the paternal projectionist at the time, Alfredo. As time went on, he continued to spent every free moment there before meeting a girl, Elena, who he fell in love with. As the stars would have it, however, they were torn apart and Salvatore left his hometown to pursue his lifelong film ambition elsewhere. Having not had contact with Alfredo for several years, he hears news of his death and subsequently discovers a priceless gift left to him by Alfredo.
'Cinema Paradiso' is arguably the most incredible movie about the magic of cinema that has ever been released. Directed by Giuseppe Tornatore ('The Star Maker', 'Malena', 'The Legend of 1900'), it was released in 1988 and won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film as well as multiple BAFTAs and a Golden Globe. Now, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, it is being re-released this Christmastime after a restoration from the original negative and will hit cinemas once more on December 13th 2013.
