We gave it a B-

Giuseppe Tornatore’s 1990 Foreign Film Oscar winner mapped the tumultuous life of Salvatore, a famous filmmaker whose art is inspired by his personal tragedies — so what’s another 51 minutes? Well, for starters, you’ll discover ”what really happened to the love of a lifetime.” Translation: Most of the restored footage in the now-nearly-three-hour comedy-drama is an epilogue to the romance between Salvatore and his adolescent love, Elena.
