Cinema Paradiso: Collector's Edition (2006)

Details Release Date: Nov 07, 2006; DVD Release Date: Nov 07, 2006

Which version of Giuseppe Tornatore's movie — the unabashedly nostalgic tale of a Sicilian boy and his film-projectionist father figure—do you prefer: the Oscar-winning original, or the less sentimental, much longer director's cut? Now, with Cinema Paradiso: Collector's Edition, you can have both.

EXTRAS
A CD proves the Ennio Morricone soundtrack still enchants. As for Michael Chiarello's cooking demo, grilled pesto pizza and brown-buttered popcorn sound appetizing, but Paradiso will go just as well with a large pepperoni and Pop Secret.
