Screening of “Cinema Paradiso”

March 5, 2010

Today I went to watch Cinema Paradiso directed by Giuseppe Tornatore at LAU as part of our Art of Film class.

It was a very interesting movie, I loved it. It was a bit long but I didn’t mind it, the story is very well written. I really liked the cinematography as well.
What I didn’t like was the fact that sometimes the sound¬†was out of sync with the picture, I don’t know what was wrong with the copy of the dvd but it was something that I was able to overlook more or less.
I don’t know why but I didn’t feel that the oldest “Toto” resembled the younger “Toto’s”; they looked more like each other. Not physically but they way they acted and the way they interacted with other characters.

But overall I loved it!
