@Florian Herz: Buffalo 66 have been on my watch list for too long, I think it's about time I actually watch it, thank you for the suggestion.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Dec 2 2:27
@Lost in Space: I need to re-watch Enter the Void, on my first view i actually got physically sick because of the way they shoot it. lol. I don't know what it is but it really did happen. Thank you for your suggestion.

I fully support the above recommendation of Buffalo '66. Nicely done!

"I'm here" is the most romantic movie I've ever seen
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Mar 8 10:31
It's my favorite kind too. I'd add 'All About Lily Chou-Chou', 'Memories of Matsuko' and 'All The Real Girls'.

Interesting list!
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 31 9:14
May I suggest Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind..

"When I was a kid, I thought I was. I can't believe I'm crying already. Sometimes I think people don't understand how lonely it is to be a kid, like you don't matter. So, I'm eight, and I have these toys, these dolls. My favorite is this ugly girl doll who I call Clementine, and I keep yelling at her, "You can't be ugly! Be pretty!" It's weird, like if I can transform her, I would magically change, too."
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jan 4 17:09
Great list!! I'd personally recommend 'This Is England' (2006)
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at Aug 1 9:58
this is great, i have only seen a few and i like the tittle of the list. i never look at lists that are named depresing, sad, make you cry, cause they already tell how its going to end. this is more what i was looking for
Posted: 3 weeks, 4 days ago at Oct 27 10:48
For a beautiful poignant film, try Sansho the Bailiff
Posted: 3 weeks, 4 days ago at Oct 27 13:54
Great list .
I'd add "Le Scaphandre et le papillon" and "Le Conseguenze dell'amore ".
