    I saw the Intouchables with my SO in the theater and we both really enjoyed it (also on my Moms recommendation)

    Not necessarily a small film but my favorite movie of all time is The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel

    Also Everything Is Illuminated I thought was really excellent and touching

    I cannot believe no one mentioned:

    The Red Violin - Samuel L. Jackson and a cursed violin - excellent!!

    The Spanish Prisioner - Campbell Scott & Steve Martin - very good movie, not about Spain or a prison movie

    The Girl with the Pearl Earring - Scarlett Johannsen & Colin Firth

    Grand Canyon - Keving Kline, Danny Glover, Steve Martin, Alfre Woodard, Mary Louse Parker, and more - great movie about how small we are compared to the Grand Canyon.

    Chocolat - Juliette Binoch (sp?) and Johnny Depp at his most delectable - need I say more?

    Also loved The Station Agent and Muriel's Wedding.

    What ever happened to Tom Courtenay?
    I'm not sure what has happened to Tom Courtenay, but here is a sidebar.
    As a young girl I had a huge crush on him from his part in Dr Zhivago...move ahead a number of years and I was living in the UK and working in a theatre there.
    Tom Courtenay was one of the actors, and well, I didn't have a crush any more.

    ah Johnny Depp. (sigh)
    another sweet movie he was in, I don't know if it has been mentioned, was Don Juan de Marco.

    It's the one directed by Alfonso Cuaron. It has a very similar feel to The Secret Garden and Black Beauty.

    Default Once more with feeling- gotta love this thread!

    I loved the Spanish Prisoner. Has anyone here seen Return of the Seacaucus Seven? REALLY good movie. Sort of like the Big Chill without the stars.
    I don't like Johnny Depp-too wierd, but I did like chocolat. Music was the best part.
    I still love Claire's knee, and all of Erich Rohmer's movies.
    And did anyone else love Life is Beautiful?
    Enchanted April?

    Default And another one!

    Now this is certainly not a small movie, but I don't know how it has worn, and if some of you youngsters haven't seen it, but Fiddler on the Roof was on yesterday, and I watched the first half. GREAT music. GREAT dancing. The Cossacks at the bar, and the 'bottle dancers' at the wedding! wow! Funny thing about that movie and Romeo and Juliet. I was, ahem, much younger when they were released. With R& J, I was about 14. I was reading it in English, and could recite most of it by heart. When I got older, I could see the parents point of view. Same with Fiddler. I was irreligous at the time, so of course, I saw the parents as old fogies. When I watch it now with strong faith, I wonder what I would do if my child wanted to marry out of my faith.

    Not sure if it was mentioned, but Perfume, The Story of a Murderer...creepy.

    I mean seriously creepy. But excellent. I watched it probably 2 years ago, and sometimes it still sneaks up on me and creeps me out.

    Another I am not sure if it has been mentioned, but I loved

    The Gods Must Be Crazy

    You have to have a little patience with the opening. Years ago, I happened to tune in about 1/3 of the way through and I was hooked. It rarely shows up on cable nowadays.

    My list has gottn very long thanks to this thread!

    I haven't read past page six, so I don't know whether anyone has mentioned a wonderful film with Terrence Stamp called "The Limey." Also want to mention "I Love You to Death" with Kevin Kline, Tracy Ullman, and great supporting cast.

    Default The Gods must be crazy!!!!!

    GREAT movie.
    Another one we talk about a lot when it comes to horse movies, but it is kind of rare. I don't have netflix, so it might be there, but Champions. What a movie!
    I especially remember when they are in the race, and they show his peeps at home watching the race, the little girl with the gorgeous cat on her lap-cat was a dead ringer for my wonderful Malarkey.

    My Dinner with Andre

    Barcelona.

    Memento - small sci-fi-ish (set in present-day California) movie by Christopher Nolan before he made Inception. Excellent small cast starring Guy Pearce.

    A Good Year with Russell Crowe inheriting a villa in France. *swoon*

    That's the thing about a great actor: they can make you fall in love with them as a character, not so much as a person. What woman could not fall for Olivier in Wuthering Heights and yet he was pretty much gay.

    King of Hearts

    "King of Hearts (original French title: Le Roi de Cœur) is a 1966 French comedy-drama film directed by Philippe de Broca and starring Alan Bates.

    The film is set in a small town in France near the end of World War I. As the Imperial German Army retreats they booby trap the whole town to explode. The locals flee and, left to their own devices, a gaggle of cheerful lunatics escape the asylum and take over the town — thoroughly confusing the lone Scottish soldier who has been dispatched to defuse the bomb."
