Hope is often ridiculed as a pipe dream, but it does not require us to reject the reality of suffering. Featuring the Main Theme from the film Cinema Paradiso composed by Ennio Morricone.
This episode features guitarist Adriano de Sal’s arrangement of Ennio Morricone’s Main Theme from the film Cinema Paradiso (1989), directed by Guiseppe Tornatore. The film follows a fictional filmmaker, affectionately known as “Toto” during his boyhood, as he reminisces about growing up in a small Sicilian town in the years following World War II. For Toto, the local cinema hall was a place of hope and wonder, especially after the death of his father in the war.
