A winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, 5 BAFTA Awards including Best Actor, Original Screenplay and Score, the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival and many more, discover Giuseppe Tornatore's much-lived homage Cinema Paradiso - remastered for its 25th anniversary in 2013.
Love and the silver screen intertwine when an acclaimed filmmaker returns to his Sicilian hometown to attend the funeral of the local cinema's old projectionist, Alfredo. The trip causes Salvatore to reminisce about the past. It was watching Alfredo work that inspired him to become a director. At the same time, it was in the village that he first fell in love.
✮✮✮✮✮ "Tornatore taps themes of bonding, nostalgia, community, history and the power of film to transport man into a world of dreams" - Ian Nathan, Empire
