Singin' in the Rain
The film of films.
The Crucified Lovers
No movie ever got closer to traagedy.
A new sense of cinematic space, forever original.
True Heart Susie
Isn't pastoral the deepest nature of cinema ?
Western, love, death, Virginia Mayo, Dorothy Malone, who could ask for anything more ?
The most subtle, elegant and cruel romantic film and D. Darrieux, Charles Boyer on top form.
Hiroshima mon amour
The craft of editing present with past, an affair and an historical horror and the begining of a master's work.
Some Came Running
An unforgettable picture of people in need of more meaningful lives.
Chun jiang shui nuan
So sensitive, so clever, so moving.
A fine mise en scène of love as an adventure.
Of course my list would have been different yesterday or tomorrow. But I would have tried in the same way
to avoid common recognition and to stick to my own taste, without any consideration for historical or geographical fairness.
My choice is based only on aesthetic appraisal.
