Giuseppe Tornatore's beautiful Cinema Paradiso explores youth in a coming-of-age tale woven with a celebration of the cinema. The prime example of "nostalgic postmodernism" was the 1989 Academy Award winner for best foreign language film. Anybody who loves movies enough to regularly visit revival houses will get choked up by the parade of forbidden kisses that constitutes this film’s climax. And Ennio Morricone really outdoes himself in his score here. See a newly restored version of the film in honor of the 25th anniversary of its Oscar win.
