Cinema Paradiso Blu-ray Review

6 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The mark of a truly classic film is that its themes and subject matter are timeless, relatable to each successive generation even if the direct circumstances have passed.  Cinema Paradiso falls perfectly into that mold.  I had often heard that Cinema Paradiso was cinema’s greatest ode to motion pictures, and such could not be more accurate. Hit the jump for our review of Cinema Paradiso on Blu-ray. The film follows Salvatore “Toto” Di Vita as he grows from a young boy (Salvatore Cascio) to a teenager (Marco Leonardi) under the tutelage of the projectionist at the local movie theatre, Alfredo (Philippe Noiret).  As a young boy Salvatore would sneak into the movies until Alfredo agreed to teach him the trade.  When a projector fire burns down the Cinema Paradiso and takes Alfredo’s sight, a local lottery winner builds a new theater for which Salvatore becomes the new projectionist. »
