    Time Out

    Returning to cinemas in spiffily remastered form ... the film retains its wide-eyed charm, pitched halfway between unrestrained romanticism and unknowing kitsch.

    Seattle Times
    July 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 Chronicle
    July 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 Press
    July 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 Post
    July 11, 2002

    Still rapturous after all these years, Cinema Paradiso stands as one of the great films about movie love.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    June 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 Desk

    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 intimate

    Observer (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.

    December 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.
