Another film music hit for Ennio Morricone, scoring this dramatic and mischievious Italian film.
A celebration both of childhood and the medium of film, Giuseppe Tornatore's 1988 drama Cinema Paradiso has become one of the most cherished slices of world cinema in recent years.

The two originally first wrote music together for a series of Italian crime dramas called Ultimo, before their work on Cinema Paradiso won them a Bafta.
