2. Doctor Zhivago is one of the most beautifully shot movies of all time. Starring Julie Christie and Omar Sharif based on the novel by Boris Pasternak. The movie is a story of Russia that spans the continent and the Bolshevik Revolution. It is lush and romantic and you will even learn some history.
3. A Town Like Alice starring Bryan Brown and Helen Morse based on a novel by Nevil Shute This might be bit of a cheat because this is an Australian mini-series. It takes the romance through many years from a Malaysian prison camp to a town in the back of beyond in Australia. This movie captures the awkwardness of reconnection and starting over in a new land.
If any one in Hollywood is listening I have a great story about two ordinary people who meet in a very big world. It would fit in quite nicely at number five.
