210. The Princess and the Warrior (2000)
I'm having trouble sleeping. I keep dreaming about you.
One of my favorite love stories of all time. This is the story of Sissi, a young lady who lives a solitary life an devotes herself entirely to her job at an asylum for the mentally ill. After being injured in a traffic accident, she is saved from certain death by a mysterious man named Bodo. At first she seems to think that this man may be her one true love, but Bodo's past and uncertain sinister future run counter to Sissi's loving ways. This movie proves that you don't a movie doesn't have to be erotic or graphic to be romantic. The couples burgeoning love comes through in their muted performances and beautiful cinematic storytelling from director Tom Tykwer.
