The Godfather - Francis Ford Coppola

Michael: What’s the matter? What’s bothering you? I’ll handle it. I told you I can handle it, I’ll handle it.
Don Corleone: I knew Santino was going to have to go through all this and Fredo… well, Fredo was… But I, I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life, I don’t apologize, to take care of my family. And I refused to be a fool dancing on the strings held by all of those big shots. That’s my life, I don’t apologize for that. But I always thought that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the strings. Senator Corleone, Governor Corleone, something.
Michael: Another pezzonovante.
Don Corleone: Well, there wasn’t enough time, Michael. There just wasn’t enough time.
Michael: We’ll get there, Pop. We’ll get there.


Frida - Julie Taymor


Tina:I don’t believe in marriage.
No, I really don’t. Let me be clear about that. I think at worst it’s a hostile political act, a way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense. At best, it’s a happy delusion - these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable they’re about to make each other. But, but, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I don’t think it’s conservative or delusional. I think it’s radical and courageous and very romantic. To Diego and Frida. 

Leon: The Professional - Luc Besson

- I don’t wanna lose you, Leon. 
- You’re not going to lose me. You’ve given me a taste for life. I wanna be happy. Sleep in a bed, have roots. And you’ll never be alone again, Mathilda. Please, go now, baby, go. Calm down, go now, go, go. See you at Tony’s. I am gonna clean them all. Tony’s in a hour. I love you Mathilda.
- I love you too Leon.

Casablanca - Michael Curtis

Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca? 
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters. 
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert. 
Rick: I was misinformed.

Funny Games - Michael Haneke

”- we bet… What time is it?  
- Eight-forty.  
- that in, let’s say, 12 hours…  …all three of you…  …are gonna be kaput. Okay? 
- What?  
- You bet that you’ll be alive tomorrow at 9:00…  
…and we bet that you’ll be dead. Okay?”

North by Northwest - Alfred Hitchcock 

"Roger Thornhill: Who are you? 
Valerian: Mere errand boys carrying concealed weapons. His is pointed at your heart, so, please, no errors of judgment, I beg of you. 
Roger Thornhill: What is this? A joke or something? 
Licht: Yes, a joke. We will laugh in the car.”

Match Point - Woody Allen

"The man who said “I’d rather be lucky than good” saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net and for a split second it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck it goes forward and you win. Or maybe it doesn’t and you lose"
- Christopher Wilton

La Vita e Bella (Life is Beautiful) - Roberto Benigni

"The game starts now, whomever’s here is here, whomever’s not is not. The first one to get a thousant points wins. The prize is a tank! Lucky him! Everyday we’ll announce who’s in the lead from that loudspeaker. The one with the least points has to wear a sign saying ‘jackass’ right here on his back. We play the part of the real mean guys who yell. Whomever’s scared loses points. You’ll lose your points for three things. One: if you cry, two: if you want to see your mommy, three: if you are hungry and want a snack. Forget about it! …"
- Guido

Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain - Jean-Pierre Jeunet

"Finally, on the night of August 30th 1997,  comes the event that will change her life for ever. Only the first man to discover Tutankhamen’s tomb would understand how she felt on finding this treasure hidden by a little boy 40 years ago. 
On August 31st at 4am, Amélie has a dazzling idea. Wherever he was, she would find the box’s owner and give him back his treasure. If he was touched, she’d become a regular do-gooder. If not, too bad.”
