Comments

I tried to vote for the most essential and memorable films that I recommend seeing more than few times, although I would mention plenty of others. These films made profound impact on me, but I must admit that Amélie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet) is the film of my soul. Tomorrow this list could be slightly different, including other very important, masterful, unforgettable films. I must add Children of Paradise (Marcel Carne, 1945) and Inception (Christopher Nolan, 2010) in positions 11 and 12.
