Jean Vigo's L'Atalante (1934)

It has been a personal fave of mine for decades, thanking Enrico Ghezzi's "Fuori Orario" TV program... Enrico used Patti Smith's "Because the Night" anthemic song during the gramophone scenes he used as program opening... he still does, after 25 years... and Juliette's smile, the shiny, handsome actress Ditta Parlo, made a younger me falling in love, decades ago... in love as I still am!

Superbly powerful stuff!

Thanking Peter (Sikking)'s Blog and this superb French Blog, as well... they both reactivated my remembrance and pre-puberal, film-buff memories;-).
