A boy, Salvatore, who grew up in a tiny Sicilian Village returns home as a famous director after receiving news about the death of an old friend. Told in a flashback, he reminiscences about his childhood and his relationship with Alfredo, a projectionist at Cinema Paradiso. Under the fatherly influence of Alfredo, Salvatore fell in love with film making, with the duo spending many hours discussing about films and Alfredo painstakingly teaching Salvatore the skills that became a stepping stone for the young boy into the world of filmmaking.
Cinema Paradiso took home an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the 1990 Academy Awards. It also won a Golden Globe for the same title.
