Most likely, the perfect Hitchcock work.

The Passion of Joan of Arc (1927)
The photography of this film is its main asset and one of the main reasons why it is considered a masterpiece of silent cinema (and cinema in general).
Its powerful visuals, especially the close-ups of the protagonist, and its prodigious sense of rhythm make it a true cinematic experience.
A very personal jewel from its director, who perfectly captures his unique and unrepeatable universe.
The lack of inspiration of its protagonist ends up constituting the work itself. A timeless imaginative anarchy where reality and fantasy mix and where Guido Anselmi played by Matroianni embodies the most explicit of the director’s alter egos .
Battleship Potemkin (1925)
One of the key films in the development of narrative in cinema, as well as editing and editing. In the famous scene on the Odessa steps, there are more than 170 shots linked by editing that manage to provoke sensations that go beyond the succession of all those shots, reaching a visual power that would mark countless later directors.
It retains its narrative nerve and its potential to move the viewer even today and is considered by some to be the best film ever.
It has an allegorical and poetic language and a daring sensuality for the time. Vigo’s film achieves a perfect balance between comedy and drama, reality and fantasy, at the same time that it is a clear denunciation of problems such as unemployment, ignorance and social inequality.

At the End of the Getaway (1960)
À bout de souffle is one of the emblematic titles of the Nouvelle Vague.

An existentialist journey into the abysses of madness and despair. War as an obsession, where Willard and Kurtz are two sides of the same coin.

Ordet (The Word) is one of the most beautiful and complex films ever shot, a profound reflection on faith and the different positions of individuals towards it.
Reason against faith, science against dogma, tolerance against fanaticism, humanism against idealism. The millimeter planning of each shot and the sobriety of the sets (bordering on abstraction) are some of the characteristics of Dreyer’s style, which reaches its most absolute refinement here.
In the mood for love (2000)
A precious and subtle romantic drama that constitutes the pinnacle of its director’s filmography. The poetic perfection of this film is based on its ability to “catch” time and make it subject according to the state of mind of its protagonists.
To reflect inner and emotional time, images and music go hand in hand almost perfectly. The characters are torn between fidelity and the impulse of love, trying to hide their feelings, suffering the disappointments of love and rehearsing (painful) disappointments and farewells. The time that is gone and the one that could have been lived.
Kurosawa’s first masterpiece, a moral fable about relativism and the philosophy of human acts. The questioning of the reality of our actions (an influence on innumerable later films, even speaking of the “Rashomon Effect”) makes the viewer have to cast their own gaze on the same event that can have multiple interpretations.
