CINEMA PARADISO: THE SPECIAL EDITION is an Italian film about a boy who falls in love with the cinema after spending time with the film projectionist in his local cinema.

Sex

There is a scene in which it is implied that boys are masturbating whilst watching a film at the cinema which shows a woman's bare buttocks; the woman's buttocks are only briefly sighted and there is no visual detail. There is also brief sight of implied sexual activity as it appears that a clothed couple are having sex in the cinema.

Language

There are uses of mild bad language such as 'bastard', 'bloody', 'sod' and 'jerk'.

Threat

There is a scene of mild threat when a character is trapped in a fire. The scene is a little intense, but not particularly prolonged or disturbing.
