Totò’ got off a blue bus. He held a suitcase in each hand. He sat them on the ground. He looked around to his old hometown. Everything changed. But everything is the same. He stared dead center to his old employer, the good ol’ Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, the place he grew up at.
Totò’ started at the theater when he was just a kid. The movie projector fascinated him and the magic the projector brought to people. His good friend, Alfredo, whom is like a father figure in Totò’’s life, showed him the ropes of the movie biz. Totò’ literally grew up at this theater. He had his first kiss, his first fuck, his first crush, and his first love there. In fact, his love has never left his thoughts. He wanted to be with her forever, but fate had different plans. As a result, he left the theater to join the army. He decided to come back home after his duty was completed.
Totò’ stared at the movie theater with nostalgia. He noticed a man at the projector booth, leaning out of the window from inside the theater, having a smoke and catching a breather. Totò picked his two suitcases up, and walked toward the theater. He was both sad and happy to be back home. As he walked toward the theater, a dog approached him. Totò’s emotion changes rapidly as he dropped the two suitcases back on the ground, and knelled down to the dog’s level. He then petted the dog with a sign of warm friendliness.
“At least someone is good to see me home,” Totò thought to himself.
