Reviews: Cinema Paradiso

Long and somewhat slow, but ultimately worth it.

I'll admit it - I'm not a great fan of slow-paced films. This is an exception. Although the plot's slow-moving and a bit of a cliché storm, the music's heartwarming and the general direction and acting tell a story that tugs at the heart-strings. I had something in my eye a couple of times...the story's lumpy in places, but very emotional and very worth watching.
