Critic Reviews of "Cinema Paradiso"Time OutDecember 09, 2013
Returning to cinemas in spiffily remastered form ... the film retains its wide-eyed charm, pitched halfway between unrestrained romanticism and unknowing kitsch.Seattle TimesJuly 19, 2002
The heightened symmetry of this new/old Cinema Paradiso makes the film a fuller experience, like an old friend haunted by the exigencies of time.Houston ChronicleJuly 19, 2002
In the director's cut, the film is not only a love song to the movies but it also is more fully an example of the kind of lush, all-enveloping movie experience it rhapsodizes.Detroit Free PressJuly 19, 2002
The film's final hour, where nearly all the previous unseen material resides, is unconvincing soap opera that Tornatore was right to cut.Washington PostJuly 11, 2002
Still rapturous after all these years, Cinema Paradiso stands as one of the great films about movie love.San Francisco ChronicleJune 28, 2002
This director's cut -- which adds 51 minutes -- takes a great film and turns it into a mundane soap opera.Q Network Film DeskApril 01, 2017
That balance of the ideal and the tragic weaves all throughout Cinema Paradiso, which is epic in terms of the time frame it covers, but feels consistently intimateObserver (UK)December 16, 2013
Recent changes to cinema which have seen the projectionist's art sidelined in the digital age add a further layer of poignancy to the magical memories.Daily Express (UK)December 13, 2013
It looks lovely and is full of classic, memorable moments, including a tear-jerking finale.Daily Mail (UK)December 12, 2013
One of the most delightful and affecting of all movie endings.GuardianDecember 12, 2013
Cinema Paradiso is much loved, though I have occasionally been the man in the Bateman cartoon: the reviewer who confessed to finding Cinema Paradiso a bit sugary and the kid really annoying.Daily Telegraph (UK)December 12, 2013
Tornatore may have hit a sticky wicket with his subsequent work, but he knew what he was doing here: warning us about the irrational lure of the filmed past, which is to say cinema itself, then ushering us grandly to our seats.
