Italian (English subtitles)
Cinema Paradiso director Giuseppe Tornatore hails from the Sicilian town of Baaria and it’s there he sets this glossy, nostalgia-soaked family saga. In comparison to modern Italian cinema - the likes of Gomorra and Il Divo - Baaria is a refreshingly summery watch. Alfresco dinners, strolls through lemon orchards, and glorious sunshine, Baaria is like a holiday without the price tag.
Il Postino is the tale of Mario, a shy man on a beautiful Italian island who becomes a postman and becomes friends with a famous poet on his route.
