"The film divides into three parts, corresponding to the three ages of cineaste-hero Salvatore. As an adorable 10-year-old moppet (first-timer Salvatore Cascio), the boy sneaks into the parochial Paradise Cinema to watch a priest (Leopoldo Trieste) snip out all the kissing scenes. He worms his way into the heart of crusty peasant projectionist Alfredo (a well-balanced Philippe Noiret) who speaks in film dialog... Second part shows Salvatore as a teenager in love with a blond banker's daughter (Agnese Nano). Last is Salvatore as white-haired Jacques Perrin, now a famous film director. He returns to Sicily for Alfredo's funeral and finds his long lost love, now played by Brigitte Fossey." (Variety)Hide
