From the 1980s
A filmmaker recalls his childhood, when he fell in love with the movies at his village's theater and formed a deep friendship with the theater's projectionist.
Utterly irresistible, this may be a cornball celebration of the art and social history of cinema, but it's also a thoughtful memoir of more innocent days, when pleasures rarely came cheaply or instantly.
Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
Still rapturous after all these years, Cinema Paradiso stands as one of the great films about movie love.
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
