    Wow. Three and a half years, and no one has yet mentioned Marcel Carné's Children of Paradise!

    Most favorite film? Probably Red Beard (Akahige) by Kurosawa. It was already mentioned here. Other good films in no particular order are Ningen no joken (The Human Condition), La beauté du diable 1950, Citizen Kane, Anand 1971, Scent of a Woman, Caravan Himalaya, Magnolia, Trueman Show, Jodaeiye Nader az Simin, Nocturnal Animals, Andrei Rublev, Ben-Hur, Barry Lyndon. In general, I like almost anything by Kurosawa and Kubrick. These are the more serious films. Then there are a lot of less serious but good films in the likes of Shawshank Redemption

    How is that brave? It was the #1 film of all time when it came out, so millions love it. As a Catholic, I enjoy seeing positive portrayals of nuns in movies (see also Sister Act), and I adore the music in the movie.

    More people having it as a guilty pleasure, always "moaning "about it but still loving it.

    The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958). Of course I was just a wide-eyed kid sitting mesmerized in a movie theatre; but it has forever for me exemplified "movie magic."

    I can't say what my all time favorite is,one of them is certainly this one.Beautiful scenery of a timeless landscape and a world that is gone.



    Hollywood icon Sarah Miles has revealed she was "heartbroken" when she saw how the Dingle Peninsula had been allowed develop since filming 'Ryan's Daughter'.

    The star of the David Lean-directed epic was back in west Kerry last night to officially open the 10th Dingle International Film Festival with a special screening of the film that also starred Robert Mitchum, Trevor Howard, Christopher Jones, John Mills and Leo McKern, at the Phoenix Cinema.

    This is only her second time to visit the area where she spent almost two years of her life in the late 1960s

    Crews from 'Star Wars' are expected to begin filming on the Dingle Peninsula in May but it was 'Ryan's Daughter' that put it on the map and showcased the beauty of the area to an international audience.

    But Miles (74), who played Rosy Ryan, can't get over how the area has changed.

    "I was quite stunned when I came back 10 years ago to see how much thoughtless building there was," she says.

    "It upset me to see these thoughtless bungalows all over the place. It's heartbreaking that you can ruin a view with bungalows like that.

    "There should have been some control over where you can place your home because the whole of Ireland is ruined now because of these bungalows everywhere.

    "It's absolutely heartbreaking that it could happen to the most beautiful isle on Earth. So that upset me a lot, I have to say."

    But Miles, whose late husband Robert Bolt wrote the screenplay, paid tribute to the people of the area, whom she described as "decent", "happy" and "beautiful".
