CINEMA PARADISO (1988)

1988 classic about childhood, the movies and Sicily. Alfredo is the projectionist at the Paradiso cinema, where young Salvatore – to become a famous film director in adulthood – is always hanging round, infatuated with American movies. During the day, the village priest comes in to censor every film, and every kiss is removed. Years later he returns for Alfredo’s funeral. The scene where the grown-up Salvatore sees all the forbidden kisses spliced together from the cutting room floor, in a secret anthology of rapture, is sublime. A beautiful film backed by wonderful music by Morricone.
