Few viewers are able to resist the charms of Cinema Paradiso, the coming-of-age tale that captured the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1989. Celebrated composer Ennio Morricone's score captures the gentle-natured, nostalgic feel of the film masterfully. From the graceful title theme (which is revisited within most of the compositions) to the wistful "Visit to the Cinema" to the majestic "From American Sex Appeal to the First Fellini Film," Morricone manages to set the mood perfectly and unobtrusively. The orchestral score complements while it adds depth and subtle color to every scene. Andrea Morricone contributes the lovely "Love Theme," a sweeping piece of music incorporating flute and summarizing the entire proceedings. The soundtrack to Cinema Paradiso is another exceptional work from Morricone and the perfect souvenir to the film.
Beautiful score for a wonderful film.
Gorgeous music, just really beautiful, like the reviewer before me said, I was struck by the music watching the film and that doesn't happen too often to me. Check out Pat metheny's take on it as well. Ennio Morricone is one of my hero's.
Perfect score for a perfect film
I just watched "Cinema Paradiso" for the first time since I saw it in on the big screen many, many years ago. It's still as I recall--a really beautiful film supported by a wonderful, mellifluous soundtrack. Then again, we're talking about a score by Ennio Morricone, arguably the greatest film composer of all time. Still, IMHO this may very well be Morricone's very best. It's bouyany, sweet, soulful, and right on the mark. In a word: shimmering.
The Greatest Score of All Time
In my opinion, Ennio Morricone is the greatest film composer ever to live. When I first saw Cinema Paradiso, one of the main things that struck awe in me about it was the music. The film alone is a testament to the beauty of love, friendship, and cinema; but the music… I have never heard anything more lovely than the music from this film. Sweet, touching, and every adjective in between… Ennio Morricone is truly a miracle.
