Coming of Age, Drama
Italian (English subtitles)
Set in the 1940s before the arrival of television in rural Italy, this delightful film centres on the local picture house in a tiny village in Sicily, and the character of Salvatore - a lonely little boy in thrall to the movies, fascinated both by the visions on the screen and the projectionist who makes them possible, Alfredo. Featuring dozens of clips from classic movies, Cinema Paradiso is a warm and nostalgic love letter to cinema itself.
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.
