Few viewers are able to resist the charms of Cinema Paradiso, the coming-of-age tale that captured the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1989. Celebrated composer Ennio Morricone's score captures the gentle-natured, nostalgic feel of the film masterfully. From the graceful title theme (which is revisited within most of the compositions) to the wistful "Visit to the Cinema" to the majestic "From American Sex Appeal to the First Fellini Film," Morricone manages to set the mood perfectly and unobtrusively. The orchestral score complements while it adds depth and subtle color to every scene. Andrea Morricone contributes the lovely "Love Theme," a sweeping piece of music incorporating flute and summarizing the entire proceedings. The soundtrack to Cinema Paradiso is another exceptional work from Morricone and the perfect souvenir to the film. ~ Tom Demalon
