Nuovo cinema Paradiso

Giuseppe Tornatore Italy, 1988

Iulian's rating of the film Cinema Paradiso

One of the very few films that would deserve even more than 5 stars...incredibly poetic and sad. It was the one that left me in tears pretty much all the way...so many memories, thoughts and feelings, parallels about love, about family, your own country... A landmark in cinema, just an overwhelming, wonderful tearjerker. Watching it, you are touched and amused at the same time by this melancholic, remarcable story.
