O Brother, where art Thou?
(2000 Joel Coen)

Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the-dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) busts loose. Except he's still shackled to his two chain-mates from the chain gang - bad-tempered Pete (John Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson). With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain — before it's lost forever in a flood - the three embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious offbeat road picture.
Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman), it's an odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses and betrayal that will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn.

Odd Couple, The
(1968 Gene Saks)

svensk titel: Omaka Par

Neil Simon has a special genius for finding great hilarity in ordinary people doing everyday things. Like two divorced men who decide to share a New York apartment.
That's the premise of The Odd Couple, although there's nothing odd in the casting of two Oscar-winning talents like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The two veteran funnymen work together with the precision timing of a vaudeville team, but always with bright spontaneity. Lemmon plays fussy Felix, fastidious to a fault. He proves that cleanliness is next to insanity. Matthau is Oscar, who wreaks havoc on a tidy room with the speed and thoroughness of a tornado. An enduring and endearing picture with the intelligence one usually misses in comedies.

(1955 Carl Theodor Dreyer) 125:-

A tale of miraculous resurrection brought about by human love, Ordet is an extraordinary expression of spiritual optimism without being either sentimental or pious.
Religious intolerance and family tensions lie at the heart of the film, which explores the clash between orthodox religions and true faith. Dreyer achieves its powerful effects in deceptively simple ways, and has produced, in its closing moments, one of the most extraordinary scenes in all cinema.
