cinema paradiso


Last week, Netlix sent me Cinema Paradiso. It was a tad on the long side (or maybe I'm just getting old and was ready to go to bed), but I liked it because I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic. Plus, I just got back from Italy. And it was really funny and endearing sometimes---especially thanks to Alfredo.

I can't believe how much Amelie pulls from this film. Jean-Pierre Jeunet must have been a fan, too. Trailer here.

This is my absolute favorite foreign film. And definitely in my top three overall. Love it!

(I hope you didn't watch the alternate ending. Do yourself a favor and DON'T. EVER.)
