Looking for special editions of Cinema Paradiso: The New Version?
Salvatore "Toto" returns to his Italian town & home after a 30 year absence for the funeral of a man who served as a father figure to him during his childhood--the town's movie projectionist. Old mysteries are solved as well as old love's re-explored. Heartwarming, funny, and enchanting love story weaved around a trip down memory's lane for movie buffs as well.
I've not seen this newer version - only the original which is on the B side of the DVD so I CAN review that:
This really is a beautiful and quite charming Italian film. A little boy during WWII growing up in a small village in Sicily with his mother & sister. His father is at war and missing. The small movie theater in their town is his (and the towns) only escape from poverty and the war. He befriends the man who runs the projector and they quickly make an impact in each others lives. Beautifully told little story. This movie was made in 1988 and won every possible award it could win around the world, including the Academy award for best foreign film.
