Comments

This is a very personal and random top ten of favourite films, chosen mainly because I prefer cinema to be like poetry (Tarkovski, Sokourov, Tarr, Angelopoulos, Duras, Schroeter) or to be about the love for cinema (Wenders and Vertov) or to be made by Godard. I chose Les Enfants du Paradis as a tribute my daughter who I named after the main character in the film played by Arletty: Garance. Mother of Sokourov was a perfect start to my 1997 visit to Cannes, right after my mother died.
