The Road

hard to beat the book

(Edit) 23/02/2015

This was a poor attempt to capture the powerful images in the book. Yes, the darkness and gloom were there, but the relentless desire and creativity of the human spirit, captured in detail in the book, was never recreated in the film. I wouldn't recommend.

Cinema Paradiso

A beautiful life and times story

(Edit) 03/02/2015

A friend recommended this when I told him the name used by the company I was borrowing it from. He was surprised I hadn't seen it. The film moves through the life of its main character and the village where he lives and through this story we witness the changing times, the rise and fall of the cinema, conscription, growing affluence and the tragic event which shaped his life. You hardly notice the music but when you take it in it is a gentle, fitting and beautiful accompaniment.
