I haven't cried while watching a movie in such a long time. I am new to these Italian flicks, and boy, do they outdo themselves. The movie is a flashback in time of a self-made man and his amazing friendship with a projectionist at the town cinema, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso. It flashes from his young boyhood, to adolescence, and finally to his present, nostalgic adulthood. The actors and actresses are wonderful, in part because they are all new to me, and you know how I love new faces.
