This is the result of a weak script and musical numbers that work as cover-ups for the lack of a solid plot. I didn't hate it, but I'm disappointed.
I've been trying to put into words how much I love this film, but I can't. Cinema Paradiso is a film that changed my life, and I can't think about it without having a big smile on my face. Thank you, Giuseppe Tornatore, for telling a story that touched so many people and influenced so much more. I'm forever grateful.
