A filmmaker recalls his childhood when falling in love with the pictures at the cinema of his home village and forms a deep friendship with the cinema's projectionist.
In some versions of the shorter theatrical release a shot of a far older Elena can be seen in the final credits montage (perhaps intentionally).
Maria Di Vita - Older:
Yes, Salvatore di Vita. You mean you don't know him, Miss? That's right, and I'm his mother. I've been calling from Sicily, all day long. I understand, he's not there.
When Toto and Alfredo are taking the test at school, Alfredo acquires an ink smudge on his right cheek. During the test the smudge changes shape and intensity several times.
The longer versions of the movie, which are not available in English, include the alternate ending wherein Salvatore and Elena meet in a shop upon his return to Rome. A snippet of this scene is in the US version credits, where an old Elena is seen turning around and looking at Salvatore.
