| Fantastic! A forgotten gem!
I first saw this as part of a Massimo Troisi film festival right after Il Postino became a success in the US. It was my favorite of the 5 films shown. I am still amazed at how few people know if this film considering that it has a big name Italian director and 2 of the biggest Italian stars of all time.

This movie does have some similarities to Cinema Paradiso which was released at about the same time. That could explain why Splendor did not find a larger audience. But regardless, this is certainly is a magical and touching film that stands on its own.

The film was re-issued in Europe on Blu-Ray and DVD in 2013. Unlike the earlier DVD release the new version does have English subtitles! If you are a fan of Italian film you really need to see this! Highly recommended!
