Five Favourite Films with Renny Harlin
The 12 Rounds star picks his list.
"Despite the kind of movies I make, I love small, little movies. I love foreign films in general, I love to see something that really moves me emotionally, and that moves me to tears. Maybe Cinema Paradiso is a little bit of a cliché, but I'm sure every cinema lover lists it as their favourite movie. There's something so beautiful about it, I love the milieu of the little town and this boy's story and what the whole thing says about how lives go and about our dreams and memories. When he grows up and goes to the movie theatre and sees all the bits that the priest cut out and it reminds him of his childhood... Cinema doesn't get more beautiful. The whole film is about the incredible nostalgia of movies in general."
