Cinema Paradiso

Cinema Paradiso or the paradise of cinema is one of those unforgettable movies which keep playing through your mind long after you have seen it. It talks about many simple things of life which are so often overlooked but also have the inherent nature of being the part of our collective conscience. Although on the surface it seems to be an uncomplicated story of a man and his coming home; it is in fact made up of many layers and shades of meaning.

It is a tale of a young boy for whom cinema has acquired gigantic proportions and has ceased to be a few hours' endeavor. It also portrays the beauty of the friendship between a middle aged man and a young boy.
The film is like a journey full of ups and downs and is very nostalgic. The high point of being that although all of us may not have had such experiences but still we can relate to them and participate in them across generations. This is what makes the film beautiful and a satisfying experience. Go watch it for its ability to strike a chord with you, no matter who you are and where you are.
