one of my all time favourites. People tell me that they think it is depressing but for me it is a love letter to life and an attempt of treasuring every moment.
I am torn between wishing for Tom Ford to make another film and hoping he never will so I can treasure this perfect gem without having to compare it to others.

It's hard to find the right words to describe this extraordinary movie. It is very moving (also quite upsetting but based on true events and I think every one should have to guts to face reality)

One of the German films every one should give a try. About changing your beliefs and having the courage to become a better person.

Definitely one of the greatest underrated movies! One of my all time favourites. I can't say what makes it so good, maybe its because of the interesting characters.

Franklyn (2008)
again an underrated movie. Great idea, beautiful pictures and absorbing atmosphere.
It might look a bit scary first but it is not, and you will see it is a very interesting universe.

Based on a book from 1897. Haven't read it but it seems that it has been well adapted into our time. Great film

Despite of the fact that you like Orlando Bloom or not, it is an incedibly beautifully shot film and has one of the best original scores I know. I think people tent to misunderstand / reject Barlians concept of good and evil and therefore dislike the movie.
PS: Always watch the extended edition!

this one is based on true events as well. It is difficult to watch but the young (as well as the old) actors are doing a great job. Very good film.

I can't pin point what's so great about this one. It has a calm way of telling the story and you can see the effort they made with the costumes/surroundings. I appreciate passion for details.

I think the title is a bit misleading. I like it but it can be interpreted in the wrong way. The German title is horrible though (it is in my opinion a wrong interpetation calling the movie "Geisterhaus" = house of ghosts). So I was quite young when I watched this and therefor watched it in German (my English wasn't good enough yet) and I was expecting a scarry ghost story but it is not. It is a very great story about family and love. I loved every bit of it.

In my opinion the most valuable movies everyone should see and my personal top 100 (as soon as I have seen 100 films worth putting on this list). I tried (!) to rank it, so the higher up they are the more I like 'em. Enjoy

PS: It is an ongoing list

PPS: be careful because I tend to watch sad and disturbing movies.
