For me it has to be Sundays and Cybele (a 1962 French film) starring Hardy Kruger. It is about a shell-shocked former German soldier and a little orphan girl. Sadly it has not been put on dvd in the UK yet, but surely will come out by 2012 the fiftieth anniversary of its original release in movie theatres.

Not necessarily saying this is THE most moving or THE most beautiful, but...tonight I bought The Snowman for my kids (aged 3, 4yr old twins, and 5). They loved it...and the oldest definitely had a little tear in his eye when the snowman had melted/disappeared next morning. Worth every penny of the £3 it cost at Asda!

Yuri Norstein - Hedgehog in the Fog and Tale of Tales. Every frame of is staggeringly beautiful.

Hero with Jet Li. It's not a joke, the cinematography is stunning.

The Bicycle Thieves. A hauntingly humane portrait of dignity and familial love. The son's admonishing look to his father when he finds out he stole the bicycle at the end is the single most moving moment I've ever seen committed to film.

3-Iron/Bin Yip (Kim-Ki Duk) - stunningly shot, beautifully acted, wonderfully minimalistic despite dealing with incredibly significant and emotive topics: love, loss, fear, revenge, violence, loyalty, kinship, mortality, power, freedom, imagination, self-determination, reality vs fantasy, life paths and roles...

A truly mesmerizing film - the last time I watched it I had to stop myself starting it again the second it finished!

I'm going to add Jane Campion's Bright Star to the list, not that I've seen it - it's due to open in the next week or so I think - but judging from some of the comments on IMDB this is worth looking out for. The story of John Keats' love affair with Fanny Brawne.

'Random Harvest' with Ronald Colman and Greer Garson - get out the kleenex !! The ending is beautiful, and the acting is first class.

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain) a 2001 romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and starring Audrey Tautou. She's certainly beautiful and moving.In a class of it's own. Funny as well.

Amélie, I agree, but also "Secondhand Lions" and "Whatever happened to Harold Smith". Moving, charming, witty and loveable but thankfully no tearjerkers.

Ryans Daughter - set in Ireland during WW1,
outstanding scenery, beautifully acted, compelling love story - with a tragic ending.
