MY TEN FAVORITE EUROPEAN FILMS

(This morning, anyway)

8 and 1/2   1963   

Fellini   

Probably my all-time fave film, period. Responsibility visited, and avoided at all cost. Oh, that Guido.

 

Grand Illusion   1937

Jean Renoir

When asked to name his ten favorite movies, Orson Welles replied. “Oh, that’s easy, Grand Illusion, and nine others”.

 

The Bicycle Thief   1948

Vittorio DeSica

DeSica’s poignant look at a father and son in ravaged post-war Rome.

 

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie   1972

Luis Bunuel

Bunuel’s love affair with, and hilarious take on the Bourgeoisie – what they do, what they say, how they think – If they do, if they say, if they think. A surreal comedy – the Bunuel way.

 

Breathless   1960

Jean-Luc Godard

 

Belmondo and Seberg, on the run. Sometimes silly, often dazzling. Godard’s best, I think. And, the best of the French New Wave.

 

L’Avventura  …
