D'autre part le cinema est un langage.
André Bazin

Movies, as books and music, have the power of influencing your person. They can do it mixing words, sound, and most of all images. That's why some movies have a more powerful impact than a book. A movie is like the "ultimate medium", speaking at the same time to more than one sense, giving you the freedom to imagine and erasing the possibility to imagine too much.

Here's a small list of movies I love in particular way. I suggest you to watch them, for your own culture's sake.
