I must say that I can't choose only one so my BOTH favourites (and personally the best I've ever seen) are:

1. Contact (Jodie Foster)
UNBELIEVABLE MOVIE. It's completely undescribable, Jodie acts marvellously and the story is really touching. After finishing the movie there's nothing left but a feeling of hope. Besides it's so deep, I love the way the religion and science are stitched... you can analyse it and feel identified in many ways.

2. Shine (Geoffry Rush, don't know sp.)
This is a MUST SEE movie, weather you like music or not. I play the pìano, so for me it's outrageous. The best music EVER and the story itself it's very very sad and touching at the same time. The only time I EVER saw my father crying was in this movie. It has an amazing ending.

So... what's the movie that you can't get enough of? That you can see over and over and not get tired?

Ayn Rand's WE THE LIVING
The 1942 Film Classic Starring Alida Valli, Rossano Brazzi, and Fosco Giachetti
http://members.aol.com/DScottProd/kira_l_1.jpg
Set in the chaotic aftermath of the Russian revolution, WE THE LIVING is the story of a young woman who courageously defies a brutal regime. It is an extraordinary tale of romance and betrayal and, at its core, a fierce and impassioned outcry for the right of each human being to live free. Alida Valli's luminous portrayal of a sexually independent heroine was both daring and groundbreaking for its time.

Here goes

Top 10

1. Treasure of Sierra Madre, when it gets going you really are edge of your seat.
Bogart is amazing in this one. Classic !

2. Fifth Element, have to include this as the main charrecter has same name as me ;)

3. Unknown Soldier, finnish war classic. They show it every year on our indepence day.

4. Braveheart, FREEDOM !

5. Spartacus, I´m Spartacus, NO I´m Spartacus...

6. Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, even men cry when watching this

7. Los Olvidados, Bunuel´s best imo.

8. Belle de jour, Bunuel´s second best, as it is for Deneuve

9. Brazil, have to watch this at least 3 times before it makes sence. After that. Simply brilliant.

10. Happiness, independent American film by Todd Solonz, really don´t know wheather to cry or laugh at some charecters.
Philip Seymour Hoffman should have gotten Oscar for his role !

I also ALMOST got it what is all about!! But I had one problem with umm... let me see... Betty/Diane, Diane/Camilie, Camilie/Betty(?)... it's Camilie character which acting by Melissa George who is the singer. I don't know if her character was Betty in the blue box. It lead me was works but Betty (Melissa) and Camilie (Elena) treated Diane (Naomi) when they show kissed in face of her. It where I got failed for leading.
