Cinema Paradiso

I remember seeing this movie when I was still in high school about 15 years ago. Damn I feel so old after mentioning that. But yes watching this movie brought back lots of good memories. One of them was my favorite History Professor who introduced me to the world of foreign and indie flicks. And since then I have always been a big fan of art house films. I guess partly because of its non-mainstream appeal. And of course it never fails to shock me with the offbeat subjects it entails. Moreso, you can only see the quirkiest and interesting characters in foreign cinema.
Ultimately, watching movies is a form of escape from reality. It takes you to a place that you have never been to...a place that is off limits....and there you can be free....without being judged...
Here's a trailer for all of you who haven't seen this amazing movie..
