A CELEBRATION OF YOUTH, FRIENDSHIP, AND THE EVERLASTING MAGIC OF THE MOVIES A winner of awards across the world including Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, five BAFTA Awards including Best Actor, Original Screenplay and Score, the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival and many more. Giuseppe Tornatore's loving homage to the cinema tells the story of Salvatore, a successful film director, returning home for the funeral of Alfredo, his old friend who was the projectionist at the local cinema throughout his childhood. Soon memories of his first love affair with the beautiful Elena and all the high and lows that shaped his life come flooding back, as Salvatore reconnects with the community he left 30 years earlier. Presented in both the original award-winning cut and the expanded Director's Cut incorporating more of Salvatore's backstory, newly restored from original negative materials.

Press Quotes

Even those of you who sprang for the Lionsgate version a few years ago should feel no compunction about double dipping in this particular case, for the technical improvements of the Arrow release are substantial and the supplementary material is outstanding. Plus, both versions of the film are presented, and they're each manifestly different viewing experiences. I have been head over heels in love with Cinema Paradiso since I first saw it at an art house theatrical screening decades ago, and I fell in love with it (in both versions) all over again watching this excellent new release from Arrow. Highly recommended.


Cinema Paradiso is one of those movies that every film lover should see at least one time

     —DVD Talk

Arrow Academy's new U.S. Blu-ray is easily the definitive release of this film on disc, as it's packed with quality and value. Whichever version you prefer, Cinema Paradiso is filled with beautiful imagery and possesses a rare psychological and philosophical depth. It's a cinematic delight that every serious fan of the medium of film should experience. Very highly recommended.
