|A Man and a Woman (1966)
- Genres: Drama, Romance
- Plot Synopsis: A man and a woman meet by accident on a Sunday evening at their childrens' boarding school. Slowly they reveal themselves to each other, finding that each is a widow/widower. Each is slow to reveal anything personal so that each revelation is hidden by a misperception. They become friends, then close friends, and then she reveals that she can't have a lover because, for her, her husband's memory is still too strong. Much of the film is told wordlessly in action, or through hearing one of their thoughts as they go about their day.

|Time Is Money (1994)
Screenwriter and novelist Joseph Kaufman (Max von Sydow) has made his mark, earned gobs of money in his day, and won an Oscar for his troubles. Now he's a lot older, and all he wants to do is sit around and vegetate - and if he were anyone else, he'd probably be allowed to. However, he has a lifestyle that requires that he continue to manufacture "product," and he has an advance for a novel that he's spent without writing a word. His lovely mansion is likely to be taken by French authorities for back taxes, if he can't rouse himself to start typing. However, in this comedy, it will take the combined full-time efforts of his agent (Martin Landau), his wife (Charlotte Rampling), and a young admirer and fellow writer (Francois Montagut) to rouse him from his lethargy, and it's not at all clear that they will succeed in doing so. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

|21 Grams (2003) The Weight of the Soul
The Weight of the Soul, February 7, 2004
Reviewer: A. Casalino "V^^^^^V" (Downers Grove, IL USA)
My life's been awash in the pull of momentous turning tides, and I've faced countless daunting crises- The moment was boasting nighttime and quite frigid, (-7, actually: well amid the depths of one of the harshest Midwest winters immemorial).
I went alone to see this film.
Riveted to the screen, I was witness to raw nature and circumstance; I was witness to stark fate. Driving home the premise that it's pure ordained destiny that both joins human souls and tears them from each other, this movie is just devastating. Yet I had already sensed that this would be one of those rare films that tend to disturb the senses to a degree that sets the mind to thinking - haunting one's days and nights for weeks and months to come. Yes, by my troth I do live dangerously!

|...as two totally different futures unfold...
Sliding Doors (1998)
Young Helen is fired from her job at a PR company, and when the sliding doors of the tube car close on her,
we start to see what would have happened if she'd made the train, and if she hadn't.
Summary written by Anonymous
If Helen makes it aboard a London subway train before the sliding doors close, she will have a different future
than if she is left standing on the platform. In parallel stories, this tale follows Helen's lives down both paths simultaneously,
as two totally different futures unfold.
|How little things can change the rest of your life
Run Lola Run / Lola rennt (1998)
The film explores the events that fate alone controls and displays the constant "what if's"
that occur every moment and that can easily change the happenings of the next.

|films that give insight into the human condition
"Three Colors Trilogy" DVD
Reviewed by Ivana Redwine
In the 1990s, Polish-born filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski directed a series of three interrelated movies individually titled "Blue" (1993), "White" (1994), and "Red" (1994), but collectively known as the "Three Colors" trilogy. Now Miramax has released these three films on DVD in a boxed set that I think every lover of art-house cinema will want to own. The three-disc DVD set comes loaded with special features, and I have listed these below.
I think Krzysztof Kieslowski, who died in 1996 at the age of 54, was a genius of the order of Ingmar Bergman or Federico Fellini.
He brilliantly combined inventive stories, quirky characters, interesting images, and timeless music in films that give insight
into the human condition. I give the "Three Colors" trilogy my highest possible recommendation. (Ivana Redwine)

|WHY DON’T WE CHANGE?
What I mean in that conversation…
Why are we seeing things, hearing them and so on – more and
Yet, WE ARE STILL THE SAME…
Well, pretty much THE SAME…
WHY DON’T WE CHANGE?

With our speed – it will take FOREVER!..
Don’t you think so???
