If only we could go back again.
Cinema Paradiso is the name of the local movie house that serves as the central character in Giuseppe Tornatore’s film, around which all of the human character’s flutter, a bit akin to a moth and a light.
It’s a film created by someone who apparently loves the cinema, for the rest of us, who grew up enchanted by those ever-moving light beams from little windows at the back of the house.
For those who love cinema, and have not seen this film – that possible? , grab a copy of Arrow’s new 4k. It’s nice to see a 4k disc with HDR, in which grays remain.
There were several versions of the film, inclusive of one with Brigitte Fossey. She’s back in the 173 minute HD version, included on a separate disc.
A love letter to the movie “palaces” of the past. “They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot…”
