When I looked at Thelma & Louise in 1991 in New York, I was flashed: two fantastic actresses (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) in a road movie (my favorite genre), who vigorously defend against corrosive men. Add to that the amazing Harvey Keitel, Brad Pitt and the totally surprising ending when the two women plunge into the abyss of the Grand Canyon with their turquoise 66 Ford-Thunderbird because death seems more enticing to them than living in jail. This movie had an energy for me that I’ve never experienced before in the cinema.

My favorite movie is Forrest Gump ? Why? First, Tom Hanks is simply the best actor ever. And secondly, the film has the overall package: You can laugh, cry, be angry … the whole range of emotions just! By the way, Forrest’s mother also teaches us the wisdom of all wisdom: Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’ll get! I love it! ❤️

My favorite movie is The Last Unicorn ! Not only because I look at him every year on Christmas morning with my sister, but also because the story still makes me howl (I’m 25 …). Although the movie is already from the 80s, I could watch it ten times in a row. The beautiful (!!!!) music, great quotes and the enchanting story about the last unicorn, which desperately tries to find its conspecific, just keeps on inspiring me. You have to see the movie – seriously !!! And here’s my favorite quote: “Are you happy?” “Well, I do not know, people do not always know when they’re happy.” Howl, right?!?!?!

Actually, I love Fantasy, the second part of “Fantastic Beasts” with Jude Law as a young Dumbledore I celebrated the worst! But for me one of the most outstanding films of all time is and remains Shawshank Redemption, The Convicted . This movie just keeps touching me and I’ve probably seen it ten times already. From the hatred of the greedy prison director to the grief for the tragic death of Brooks to the exhilaration at the end … every time, the strongest emotions in me awake. I do not even want to start with the great Tim Robbins in the lead role. I just say, “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best, and good things can not die.”

The one favorite movie I do not really have, but the selection is just too big. Very high on the list but certainly ranks Stand by me by Rob Reiner. Inspired by Stephen King’s “The Corpse,” the film is about four friends who are looking for the body of a boy from their small town. At the heart of the movie is the trip itself, where the boys experience bigger and smaller adventures and engage in profound conversations. By and large, the film is simply a fabulous plea for friendship and absolutely worth seeing!

I’ve always been a big fan of Tim Burton’s gritty fantasy worlds. And hardly a movie has me as enthusiastic as his film adaptation of Alice in Wonderland . Not only that, I have a big weakness for the book anyway, Burton has the already totally crazy story just managed to put his somewhat gloomy stamp on. And on top of that, Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway as hatters and white queens make for almost funky-witty moments! ❤️

Breakfast at Tiffanys – because I love Audrey Hepburn and Holly Golightly is so crazy. A great movie!
And: Black Swan – that’s where I like the mix of story, dance, suspense.

High school gipsy like To all the boys I’ve loved before – I’ll be there! Then I lie down on the couch with a big pot of cookie ice cream and a few handkerchiefs for the very likely case of tears. That’s exactly what they do in the movies, right?
