You reminded me, I would add Charriots of Fire to my top 10 list. BTW, you reminded me of another, more of a film, than a movie, is Like Water for Chocolate".

For those having trouble trimming their list to ten, consider the 'X meets Y' series.

For example, if you have Star Wars AND Dances with Wolves on your list, just meld them into Avatar.

If you have The Godfather AND Scarface, just go with Casino.

If you have The Wizard of Oz AND Pulp Fiction, just go with the new AAlice in Wonderland.

You're welcome.
