High Fidelity is a 2000 comedy-drama film directed starring John Cusack. The film is based on the 1995 British novel of the same name by Nick Hornby :: Rob, a record store owner and compulsive list maker, recounts his top five breakups, including the one in progress. It's a movie about music nerds and freaks, about love and friendship and somehow about life in general.
Enemy At The Gates :: Two Russian and German snipers play a game of cat-and-mouse during the Battle of Stalingrad. Fascinating, but depressing war drama. Not just, but also a great movie for the participation of Rachel Weisz.
Saving Grace :: A small-town English widow, facing financial troubles after her husband's suicide, turns to agriculture of an illegal kind. Written and starred in by Craig Ferguson, who is now the host of the hilarious "Late Late Show" on CBS.
Almost Famous :: A high-school boy is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies it on their concert tour. Probably THE movie about the 70s!
L'Auberge Espagnole :: In my opinion, this movie is as much a movie of a generation as the Woodstock-documentary or "Almost Famous". It transports a joie de vivre felt and lived by the "Generation Erasmus". A strait-laced French student moves into an apartment in Barcelona with a cast of six other characters from all over Europe. Together, they speak the international language of love and friendship.
A boat has been destroyed, criminals are dead, and the key to this mystery lies with the only survivor and his twisted, convoluted story beginning with five career crooks in a seemingly random police lineup.
