I unknowingly watched the shorter version and found it absolutely magical and touching. THEN I discovered that there's a director's cut, which is what I would've normally gone for. And after having looked into that the difference between the two is... Wow. For once the shorter version is better, watching the director's cut would've completely ruined the experience for me.

Superbly serene and beautiful .We find ourselves so deeply attached to the movie,that we feel like the protagonist himself,first trying to find an escape in the movies and then unable to grapple up and come in terms with reality,our depserate attempts to cling on to something we know will not stay forever and our weakness in accpeting its change,and no matter how far we have come from where we have started we still have that deep-rooted wish to hold on to those beautiful moments and stay there forever like nothing happened at all.Musical score is so elegant it embraces the beauty of the movie.Pure masterpiece.The protagonist's homecoming is in a way kind of my return to this amazing work and my strong desire to just lie there forever.

After watching this years ago, last week I saw it on the big screen and it has gone straight to number one of my top ten films. I fell madly in love with it as it made my heart both leap and break.

A word of advice to anyone who hasn't seen the movie yet, but wishes to: do NOT watch the director's cut. Just watched it, and almost every added scene ruins what was already there in some respect. Especially that subplot towards the end. For a movie about loving classic cinema it was surprisingly mature and realistic, until that silly... well, it's a spoiler, but rest assured it sucks on ice. It's a good movie, but I can't help but feel robbed. I'm gonna have to seek out the "butchered" 123 minute cut.

Cinema Paradiso is a semi-autobiographical memoir of director Giuseppe Tornatore's youth, growing up in a small Italian town and befriending its sole projectionist. Ennio Morricone, far from his cowboy stuff, delivers a score as pretty as the images, less a plot than a series of anecdotes and impressions, couched in nostalgia. It's a love letter to the the movie-going experience, and what fascinated the director about celluloid, and if you feel a kinship with young Toto, you'll get it. I will say that the feeling of nostalgia did overwhelm the piece at times, and my innate skepticism did ring with alarm at the surely idealized memories, and I found my interest slightly waning once Toto was older (adolescent idealization feeling sappier than the child's). Still, that ending, oof. It's emotional, but also redolent with meaning. A love of cinema consummated. Stolen moments restored, as per the function of this memoir. More. As a collection of memories, the film might seem to meander, but it really did know where it was going.

Seeing this in the renovated Stockport Plaza made this extra special. Incredible film.... 1932 theatre/cinema, converted to bingo hall in 1966, reopened as a theatre/cinema with voluntary staff in 2007 with it's 80th anniversary just passed.

Deluxe Edition being ordered as I type ;)
