Ten top films in the history of cinema

From silent films to the great Hollywood studios, from classicism to experimental cinema, from Méliès to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Magnolia’ or from C. B. De Mille to Steven Spielberg, we could probably conclude that the world of cinema has gone through more changes than 20th century literature. Fast changes. The following selection is completely available thanks to DVDs, yet another change in cinema.


Tokyo story



An elderly couple visits their children in the city of Tokyo. Avoiding an exceptional argument, constantly anchored to an inevitable tendency towards routine, this movie presents an electrically dramatic plot that never falls into temptation of a mere pitiful and wild gesticulation. Relentlessly and slowly, with an exceptional script, Ozu manages to produce a sublime masterpiece, out of the blue, and depicts reality at the highest stage of truth.
