Celebrazione Cinema Paradiso

Movies can have a strange cast on you. Most don’t, but the rare ones manage to get past the veneer that’s the outward you and touch the deepest corners of your emotions and leave you shaken. Just like that.

You walk in the park filled with stale air and there’s a sudden breath of a cool fresh breeze and you simply want to unwind and give in to such an experience. Watching Cinema Paradiso is just like that. You realize the movie start, and progress, and slowly, unknowingly, get so engulfed that the world’s noises get gradually but completely muted and you reach a point where you become completely oblivious to what’s happening around and instead get into the minds of the characters and start living their life and feeling their darkest, deepest emotions in their rawest form.

Cinema Paradiso is one such experience.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, in all colors and all known flavors, there’s a gem that stands out. After reading these reviews, you think nothing can surprise and blow you off anymore, but you are nowhere close to imagining the experience that awaits you.

Some might say the movie is emotional, some romantic, some funny, and some plain classy, but it is none of these. It’s a work of art. It’s the cheery you always wanted to pick.

Yes, that’s what it is. Cinema Paradiso is a celebration of youth, friendship, romance and the everlasting magic of movies. For once, you are almost certainly going to miss something if you don’t end up seeing this. And I most certainly don’t write such stuff often.

And oh, don’t you bother to look at the ratings. Nobody ever said the world is fair.

Aficionado, it's not a new movie but a 1988 Italian movie (that incidentally won the Oscar in the Foreign language category).

And yes, I've seen American History X twice... but not Dead Poet's Society. Not yet.
