Philippe Noiret, Jacques Perrin, Marco Leonardi, Salvatore Cascio, Enzo Cannavale
A successful film director returns to his rural Sicilian village after 30 years to attend the funeral of a dear friend and former mentor who advised him, all those years ago, to forsake his humble origins and move to Rome to make a life for himself. Giuseppe Tornatore hit upon something miraculous when he wrote and directed this tale of romance, between a young man and the movies, and friendship, between the wise, wry projectionist Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) and the cheeky urchin Salvatore (Salvatore Cascio) who wiles his way into the booth. A captivating tribute to the wonder of cinema.
