4. Anthony Zimmer
French romantic thriller, with English subtitles, starring beautiful and very talented Sophie Marceau as Chiara Manzoni. Chiara is in love with a career criminal Anthony Zimmer, who is in disguise and is wanted by a police all over the world. This story was later remade by Hollywood into The Tourist (2010). But I think, this original French film is by far superior.
5. The Notebook

6. Scent of a Woman
Al Pacino is again at his best in this film about a man who "saw" women with his eyes closed, he was able to tell a lot of things about a woman just by her scent.
