For the most part, this hamfisted movie is very enjoyable.
It is, in a word, exquisite.
This film is sometimes funny, sometimes joyful, and sometimes poignant, but it s always warm, wonderful, and satisfying.
Anyone who feels as attached to the history of movies as Tornatore obviously does, there are more than enough irresistible moments.
More romantic, more emotional and ultimately more satisfying than the teary-eyed original.
The new version isn t just endless. It heightens the deeply conservative spirit of Giuseppe Tornatore s fable in a surprising new way.
This version moves beyond the original s nostalgia for the communal film experiences of yesteryear to a deeper realization of cinema s inability to stand in for true, lived experience.
I don t think most of the people who loved the 1989 Paradiso will prefer this new version. But I do.
As it turns out, you can go home again.
Less front-loaded and more shapely than the two-hour version released here in 1990.
