Cinema Paradiso.
Sooner or later a time comes when it's all the same whether you talk or not, so you might as well shut up.

Living here day after day, you think it's the center of the world.

You're young and the world is yours. And I'm old. I don't want to hear you talk anymore. I want to hear others talk about you.


 ~Words of wisdom from Alfredo, Cinema Paradiso

Giuseppe Tornatore's classic tale about a boy and his love of movies. I'd even consider watching the 3 hr long director's cut of this film. Leaves you with a palatable sense of sadness and longing. And of course, a must see for anyone who likes movies where little Italian children speak Italian.



Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder.
