Tokyo Story

1953 Japan

The most beautiful depiction of life on screen, the most human look on life. The meaning of life (and death).

1963 Italy, France

A celebration of life and art. A view of life as art and art as life. All that cinema can be.

The Passion of Joan of Arc

1927 France

Minimalism as a means to express all that is transcendent and spiritual.

La notte

1961 Italy, France

Portrait of a failed marriage that turns to be the failure of modern civilization.

Vivre sa vie

1962 France

A take-off on film noir that becomes a philosophical look at the choices of life.


1950 Japan

A refreshing look at narrative construction mixed with technical imagination and virtuosity.


1966 Sweden

Bergman's version of minimalism, a deep, dark and human passion of the soul.

Citizen Kane

1941 USA

A major tour de force of cinematic virtuosity, a puzzle portrait of human life.

The Last Laugh

1924 Germany

A mix of realism and expressionism in a dark portrayal of modern society and the path to fascism.

Modern Times

1936 USA

A portrait of the 20th century with all its characteristics. The master of human comedy at his best.
