In a small Italian town, a young boy is mesmerized by a movie theatre and strikes up a dynamic friendship with its warm-hearted projectionist. The film takes place after World War II and follows the pair’s bittersweet relationship. Cinema Paradiso was a critical and box-office success and is regarded as a classic. It won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1989 and the Special Jury Prize at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival. The film is often credited for reviving Italy's film industry, which later produced Mediterraneo and Life Is Beautiful.
