classic one
although this film is sentimental, it's also very sincere and heartwarming. it's the story of an Italian man who recalls his memories as a child through the village cinema. No wonder this film won an Oscar.

my favorite.
A wonderful story about love, friendship, growing up, and mostly - one boy's love for film. Sentimental and very personal, this is the film that made me fall in love with cinema.
