"Nuovo Cinema Paradiso" is an Italian drama film written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, with actors like Jacques Perrin, Agnese Nano, Marco Leonardi, Philippe Noiret and others.

The movie was released in 1988, when Morricone was a well-known music composer and he was chosen to compose a song that got called "Love Theme" and was featured in a scene, becoming one of the main soundtrack themes for the entire movie. It's an instrumental song of the ‘80s, an Italian song with jazzy vibes.

The plot for the movie was that, in Rome, where Salvatore Di Vita, a famous film director is being told by his girlfriend that someone named Alfredo from his childhood has passed. Then, as the girlfriend asks him who Alfredo is, Salvatore flashes back to his childhood.
