MOVIE MONDAY - an Italian movie I love

Staying with the Italian Heritage theme for this Columbus Day Monday, I chose a movie that was a long-time favorite with me: Cinema Paradiso.

Set in a charming little Italian village after World War 2, you become engaged with the story from the beginning thanks to the cutest little boy performance. The subtext is hardly noticeable as you get into the delightful story of Toto who has a fascination with movies and the cinema from an early age. He befriends the town's movie projectionist and his desire to make and watch movies is realized.

Trust me, this romantic, comedic and bittersweet film is a must have in any film-lover's library!
