Top 5 Classic Movies
On 31 December 2014
We all enjoyed these movies, and doesn't matter that they were produced before many of us were born. Here are the best 5 classic movies, that will never die:
The Wizard of Oz (1939)
I think every child saw this amazing movie. Dorothy Gale is swept away to a magical land in a tornado and embarks on a quest to see the Wizard who can help her return home. Moreover, she makes new great friends : the Scarecrow, who wants a brain, the Tin Woodman, who desires a heart, and the Cowardly Lion, who want courage.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
George Bailey devoted his life for the sake of his town and its people. He starts to have suicidal thoughts after misplacing an 8000$ loan and the machinations of the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter. That's when his guardian angel, Clarence, comes in and tries to convince him that he has made something with his life, and that he had a "Wonderful Life" by showing him how life would look without him.
A great movie awarded with three Oscars (Best Movie, Best Screenplay, and Best Director) and nominated for another five major categories. Into a bar in Casablanca, two ex lovers meet again and are in a situation that forces them to put on the fore not feelings, but duty. It's war. Entry of German troops in Morocco is imminent. American Rick Blaine manages to get the necessary papers that two people can take a plane to Lisbon. But his lover, Ilsa Lund, is now married to a prominent Czech leader Victor Laszlo, wanted by the Nazis, and Rick loses her again.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
The movie focuses on the (at first) strange relationship of two people financed by other, Holly and Paul (an unsuccessful writer). Each of them has a close circle, which helps them through the journey of their lives and, if necessary, sponsors them: an imprisoned gangster, an unmarried, very ugly and very rich friend, and a genuine philanthropist who agrees to pay Paul for a few moments of love. A true world of luxury, a perfect illustration of postwar America. There are moments in this film that can not be forgotten: a kiss in the rain that would be the perfect ending of a love that survives time, Hepburn singing “Moon River”, Hepburn's image as the woman that we all appreciate(black dress, with black sunglasses, and the memorable cigarette).
Gone with the wind (1939)
"The film that changed forever the history of Hollywood cinema," as it was called by critics. Scarlett is a strong woman who manages to confront the war, Atlanta burning, the Union Army that destroyed her beloved Tara, the poverty that followed the war. She is beautiful and has numerous qualities, but she can’t have the man she loves : Ashley. And, although she doesn’t see anyone but him, another man manages to steal her heart and change her life, even if she doesn’t want to admit.
