Cinema Paradiso (1988)

I really enjoyed watching this movie -it was very entertaining from beginning to end. Being a foreign film, I thought it was strictly a drama but was surprised as it had bits of comedy.

It's definitely a movie for filmgoers and filmmakers alike - it brought out my passion for film and the kid in me. Great story, great acting, great music - an overall great movie. I highly recommend this movie - it's a masterpiece.

p.s. For those who have already seen the movie, there is an alternative ending in the director's cut. Enjoy!

Most definitely! I saw the alternative ending, it was a bit disappointing. Glad they left that ending out, thanks for stopping by!
