A famous film director remembers his childhood at the Cinema Paradiso where Alfredo, the projectionist, first brought about his love of films. He returns home to his Sicilian village for the first time after almost 30 years for Alfredo’s funeral.

This was a great film, I think, not because of the story, which, though a good one, didn’t really hold my attention. What really made me like the film was the setting, the actors, and just how the film played out; how it was directed. The actors did a marvelous job, and the setting was amazing.
