"More romantic, more emotional and ultimately more satisfying than the teary-eyed original."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Where the original release was an essay in childish delight and adolescent longing, topped off by a muted coda implying that you really can go home again, the reissue is a fully realized epic of the heart."
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"In the director's cut, the film is not only a love song to the movies but it also is more fully an example of the kind of lush, all-enveloping movie experience it rhapsodizes."
- Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"The heightened symmetry of this new/old Cinema Paradiso makes the film a fuller experience, like an old friend haunted by the exigencies of time."
- Eric Keogh, Seattle Times
"Still rapturous after all these years, Cinema Paradiso stands as one of the great films about movie love."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
