Ramor Film Club presents
Salvatore’s mentor, Alfredo (Philippe Noiret), has died. Salvatore hasn’t been home for 30 years. Before returning for the funeral, he reminisces about his life and the effect Alfredo has had on it. He also remembers the only woman he ever loved, Elena (Brigitte Fossey).
Cinema Paradiso is a wonderful film, completely faultless. Direction: perfect. Acting: perfect. Script, cinematography, editing, musical score: perfect. All the awards that it won – Cannes Grand Jury Prize, foreign language Oscar, five Baftas, and countless others – were richly deserved. Any that it didn’t win must have been a fix.
Cinema Paradiso is perfect…
Starring: Philippe Noiret, Salvatore Cascio, Marco Leonardi, Jacques Perrin
